With practically all attention on cam- 
pus turned to basketball, the LVC grap- 
plers are presently wrestling with the 
problems of small home crowds and an 
inability to get their season going in the 
direction of their pre-season aspirations. 
The matmen were hopeful for an out- 
standing season, but as of this writing 
with their schedule at its midpoint, they 
just can't seem to get the necessary mo- 
mentum going to project into a consis- 
tent winning pattern. 

As of January 26 their team record 
stands at a somewhat disappointing 3-3-1. 
Returning from vacation at 2-1, they 
were stung badly by the ever powerful 
Delaware Valley team 34-3, but came 
right back to wallop Widener 44-8. On 
Winter Homecoming Saturday the Dutch- 
men looked listless as they dropped the 
"latch to a strong Susquehanna squad 
27-9. A week ago Tuesday, although 
helped with a forfeit at 150, the team 
could manage only a tie with Moravian 

To be fair, the team is young. Of the 
first eleven, four are freshmen, another 
four sophomores, two juniors, and only 
a senior. The first three weight classes 
are all handled by freshmen, and han- 
ded quite respectfully considering the 
fact this is their first year at the inter- 
^"egiate level. Neil Fasnacht at 118, 
^orge Kline at 126, and Larry Priester 
at 134 all have come up with big vic- 
!orie s this year. Priester started his col- 
late career with a rash of victories

avian attempted to outwit their oppo- 
nent by forfeiting to LVC at 150, and 
sending one of their grapplers against 
yet another Dutchmen freshman, Harry 
Schneider at 158. Schneider was origin- 
ally going to get the forfeit victory when 
the Greyhounds lacked a wrestler at that 
weight class. Dirty Harry turned the ta- 
bles around, however, by easily dispos- 
ing of his foe. 

Sophomore Chet Mosteller is a po- 
tential champ at 167. Mosteller has been 
a consistent winner for two years now, 
and could finish the season in with over 
20 lifetime wins in just two winters. Al 
Shortell, a junior, is a stalwart at 177 
for LVC. The other Dutchmen co-cap- 
tain, Al is a sure bet to put his man to a 
grueling test each time he steps on the 

Lebanon Valley, at this writing, has 
yet to lose at 190 this year. The soph- 
omore team of Doug Dahms and Steve 
Sanko have been taking turns putting 
away opponents. Dahms has taken up 
where he left off last year when he 
placed in the MAC championships as a 
freshman. Sanko has brought his talents 
and outstanding high school record to 
LVC from powerhouse Clarion State, 
and has added a boost to the upper 
weight classes. 

John Fechisin, a sophomore, has been 
getting the nod at heavyweight, and has 
proved to be a crowd pleaser. Back-ups 
Jim Ewin, Scott Hamor, Dave Debus, 
Ross Lobell, John Conover, and Fred 
Sheeren have all gotten a taste of com- 
petitive action this season. Just as im- 
portantly, all are freshmen. Coaches 
Petrofes and Fasnacht are surely smiling 
over that fact. 

As mentioned previously, sparse 
crowds have been plaguing the wrestlers 
at home. The student body has seem- 
ingly been saving its homework for 
nights of matches while rushing over to 
Lynch Gym on nights it is occupied by 
round-ballers. The wrestlers are condi- 
tioned probably tougher than anyone, 
but have been greeted time and again 
by empty bleachers. This is anything but 
an advantage to a young team. The grap- 
plers are currently in the midst of a 
home stand, wrestling Monmouth Satur- 
day, Haverford on Wednesday, and West- 
ern Maryland next Saturday afternoon, 
February 10. With a little cooperation, 
from the students LVC can turn in suc- 
cessful slates in both winter sports. 

D.J. and Company are deserving of 
all the credit they're getting, and probab- 
ly then some, but when it comes to sup- 
port, the wrestlers are coming up with 
an unfair short end. It starts with the

The recent U.S. Supreme Court de- 
cision on abortion, in which women 
were granted the right to seek, with 
consultation from their physicians, abor- 
tions without restriction up until the 
third month (and with lessened restric- 
tions beyond the three-month point) is 
the latest victory for woman's rights in 
a struggle that, as most readers know, 
has been continuing publicly for at least 
five years. It is the first big step in al- 
lowing American women the evnetual 
total self-determination of pregnancy. 
But, as is often the case with "first 
steps", it is not the answer, or at least 
not all of it. The easiest way to prevent 
unwanted births is, was, and always shall 
be contraception, a concept rendered 
virtually fool-proof with the advent of 
the birth-control pill. 

Birth control pills are not, however, 
that easy to come by. Women, especially 
unmarried women, still encounter ob- 
stacles in the form of family or parental 
mis-understanding, moralizing doctors, 
pressure from clergy, and, even today, 
socially-induced feelings of guilt. The 
entire question of morality, for good or 
ill, lies central in the controversy over 
contraception. Is contraception, the pre- 
vention of a fetus from developing mor- 

ally correct? Is abortion, the removal of 
an already developing fetus, morally cor- 
rect? is, in fact, pre-marital sex, the 
necessitator in many cases of the above, 
morally correct? What are morals? 

Are there no answers to the above 
questions, simply ooinions. Opinions are 
harely enough upon which to base the 
judgements that will determine, in the 
end, whether or not women are given 
the final and ultimate right of cohice 
in pregnancy. There must be facts. 

Facts are not all that hard to come 
by. Planned Parenthood and other or- 
ganizations dealing in birth control meth- 
ods and advice from the medical stand- 
point as well as the social do exist. 
They can and often do provide the nec- 
essary facts needed for a personal judge- 
ment. Why, then, are there no such or- 
ganizations at Lebanon Valley College? 

There has been considerable interest 
shown recently on campus in the estab- 
lishing of such an organization, or at 
least equipping the present college in- 
firmary with the necessary literature 
and contfaceptive devices, free of charge 
and without question. There has been 
an expression of need for honest local 
counseling in an impersonal, clinic-type 
atmosphere (the nearest such clinic of 
any repute is in Lancaster.) Students ex-

(Since the following article was written 
the L VC varsity basketball team has gone 
on to post a record-setting fourteenth 
win over S war th more last Saturday night 
by a score of 85-72. At press time 
the team was preparing for what it 
hoped would be its second decisive win 
over F&M this year - ed.) 

Lebanon Valley's Flying Dutchmen 
moved two steps closer to a possible 
undefeated season last week with a sur- 
prisingly easy 97-69 drubbing of Towson 
State and an expectedly difficult 69-64 
triumph over Albright. The Winter Home- 
coming matchup with Towson was ex- 
pected to be a close sontest, since the 
Maryland quintet had been impressive in 
some of their earlier games. In fact, 
this encounter remained close for most 
of the first half, until the Dutchmen, 
led by Don Johnson, scored ten straight 
points at the end of the half to take a 
46-32 lead into the dressing room. The 
second stanza, however, proved to be a 
mismatch, as the Valley completely dom- 
inated play both offensively and defen- 
sively to quickly build up an insurmount- 
able lead. Johnson, who came into the 
game seventh in the nation in scoring, 
boosted his average slightly by notching 
30 points despite a slow start. Kris 
Linde, one of the country's leading free- 
throw shooters, had 22 points, followed 
closely by Bill Ammons with 20, as the 
Dutchmen shot better than 60% from 
the floor and 90% from the foul line. 

Monday night's game with Albright 
again saw Lynch Memorial Gym packed 
to the rafters, as fans of both teams 
poured in to watch the crucial contest. 
Neither team was able to dominate the 
relatively low-scoring first half, but the 
Dutchmen slowly constructed a 39-25 
margin by the end of the first twenty 
minutes. After the intermission, how- 
ever, Albright rebounded strongly, for- 
cing the Dutchmen into numerous turn- 
overs (22 for the game) and poor shots, 
and the Lions gradually whittled the 
LVC lead down to nothing, knotting 
the score at 56 in the late stages of the 
game. At this point the Valley took 
hold again. Johnson, who had been shut 
off very effectively for most of the half, 
sunk two quick buckets, followed by one 

from Linde, and the Dutchmen held on 
for a 69-64 win. Johnson (who was re- 
cently named to the ECAC Division II 
All-Star team for the third consecutive 
week) and Linde led the attack with 27 
and 21 points, respectively, while Ed 
Iannarella was primarily responsible for

pression interest feel that it should be 
their right as adult, enfranchised citizens 
to avail themselves of any or all materi- 
als concerning birth control without 
question or parental notification. They 
cite the system in operation at Frank- 
lin & Marshall College as an example, 
and remind us that regardless of inter- 
vivitation rules, administration policy, 
and the atmosphere of the church-related 
college, young adults will conduct them- 
selves as they see fit. Will they be af- 
forded the opportunity to responsibly 
ensure against unwanted pregnancy as 
they see fit with a minimum of effort 
and pressure? 

With this question in mind, we at 
La Vie are presenting in upcoming is- 
sues, a series of articles based around 
the growing concern of L.V.C. students 
of both sexes about contraception and 
their rights to take it or leave it as they 
wish. With these articles we hope to por- 
tray with greater clarity the attitudes of 
all members of this academic commun- 
ity on the birth control issue. We hope 
to find out whether or not there is suf- 
ficient sentiment among students, and 
sufficient support in the faculty and ad- 
ministrative ranks, to warrant a push for 
a comprehensive and liberal birth con- 
trol organization here at L.V.C. We plan 
a student questionnaire on birth control. 
We plan interviews with key administra- 
tion figures. We plan evaluation of the 
results, and a recommendation resulting 
from those results. 

We will, of course, need the support 
of the entire campus in this venture. We 
will welcome comment from the student 
body, faculty, or administration, regard, 
less of opinion, by letter or by personal 
contact. Any feedback we receive will 
be constructive. We solicit your coopera- 
tion in hopes of making this investigation 
thorough and fruitful.

Tonight, on the next-to-last night of 
intramural basketball competition, APO

The loser of this contest really loses as 
that team will have to face the faculty 
in the first round of the playoff tourna- 
ment. However, the winner will not fare 
much better as it will come up against 
the number five team in the National 
League. Unless a minor miracle occurs, 
it appears that both teams will be inte- 
rested spectators for the remaining tourn- 
ament matchups. This should not detract 
from tonight's confrontation, which pro-

Completing this evening's schedule: 
Residents A will have their final warm-up 
session before the tournament when they 
meet Knights A at 7:30 P.M. At 8:30 
P.M., the Commuters may edge out 
FCA as the two frosh teams practice for 
their' 9:30 P.M. battle. Many experts 
feel that the finesse of the A team will 
prevail over the rough-and-tumble of 
the B squad.

sers with Elizabethtown College and the 
Hershey Educational and Cultural Center 
the Great Artist Series, which brings 
three world-famous performers or musi- 
cal organizations to the Hershey Com- 
munity Theatre. 

Wednesday, February 7, 1973, at 
8:15 P.M., the second concert of the 
series will feature Lorin Hollander, one 
of the most outstanding pianists of his 
generation in America. Mr. Hollander 
will perform an arrangement of Bach's 
Chorale-Prelude, "Jesu, Joy of Man's 
Desiring", Sonata in B Minor by Liszt, 
Ballade in G Minor, Op. 23 by Chopin, 
and Sonata No. 7 by Prokofieff. 

Linda Witmer, flutist, will be feature 
performer in a recital to be given Monday, 
February 12, 1973, at 8:00 P.M. in 
Music Annex I. She will be assisted by 
Jean Redding, piano, Carol Potter, violin, 
and Donna Gish, viola. Linda is a senior 
music education major and studies with 
Louise Pinkow. She will perform Sonata 
in F Major by Marcello, Seranade op. 25, 
Trio for Flute, Violin, and Viola by 
Beethoven. The second half of the pro- 
gram will include Night Soliloquy by 
Kennan and Sonatine by Dutilleux.

Next Psych 

Next Monday, February 5, the Psy- 
chology Department will present the 
next in its series of films concerning 
Cinematic Conceptions of Man. Entitled 
Tartuffe, it is a 1925 silent film lasting 
67 minutes. It has been described as an 
outstanding example of one of the 
world's all-time top directors (F.W. Mur- 
nau) in the era of German expressionism. 
The film will be viewed in the audio-vis- 
ual room of the library starting at 7:30 

The following week at the same time 
in the Chapel Lecture Hall The Blue 
Angel starring Marlene Dietreich will be 
shown. This 1930 film is a classic study 
of sexual humiliation that no one will 
want to miss. 

Again in the Lecture Hall on March 
19, Luis Bunuel's Un Chien Andalou 
(directed with Salvador Dali) and Simon 
of the Desert can be seen. Simon is one 
o'f Bunuel's "most outwardly comic 
works as he attacks Christianity." 

All films are open to public viewing 
and all showing times are 7130 P.M.

Demolition work on Engle Hall finally started after the administration decided 
that there was nothing left inside to sell or let the students rip off. It might still be 
in our midst for quite some time yet — not for nostalgic reasons; rather, it takes 
longer to demolish with a crowbar than a wrecking ball.

The Student Council in conjunction 
with the Dean of Students' office and 
President Sample is sponsoring on Satur- 
day, February 24, the first Parents' Day. 
The purpose of this event is to allow 
parents to come visit campus for a day 
and to expose them to as many facets of 
Lebanon Valley College life as possible 
in such a limited period of time. 

The day will begin with registration 
and coffee hour for the parents. The 
following session will include an of- 
ficial welcome by Nancy Hostetter on 
behalf of the Student Council, and intro- 
duction of the events of the day by Dean 
Marquette. President Sample will then

According to Levin, it is of funda- 
mental importance that man has and will 
inevitably continue to have potentially 
dangerous drugs at his disposal, which 
he may either use properly or abuse. 
"Neither the availability of these drugs 
nor the temptation to abuse them can 
be eliminated." 

The fundamental objective of a mod- 
ern drug abuse program, Levin feels, must 
be to help students learn to understand 
these drugs and how to cope with their 
use in the context of everyday life. "An 
approach emphasizing suppression of all 
drugs or repression of all users will only 
contribute to national problems." 

Any student interested in working on 
this project is requested to write Levin 
immediately at the Philadelphia District 
Attorney's Office.

As a follow-up to the contraceptive 
article by Ben Neideigh in the last 
issue of La Vie, I conducted a survey 
sounding out students' views on the 

The responses to the questions are as 

1. Do you feel there is a need for 
birth control literature and/or contra- 
ceptives, at easy access, on campus? 

Yes 75%, No 25% 

2. Would you advocate the availa- 
bility and distribution of unlimited 
and/or unrestricted birth control litera- 
ture and/or contraceptives from the LVC 
infirmary (Health Center)? 

Yes 75%, No 25% 

3. Would you advocate such availa- 
bility and distribution with restrictions 
(age, marital status, engagements, etc.)? 

Yes 11%, No 89% 

4. What effect, if any, do you feel 
this would have on campus "Moral 
Standards" at LVC? An effect (a damag- 
ing one) 8%; no effect 92%. 

5. Do you think parents should be 
notified if their children have procured 
or attempted to procure contraceptives 
and/or literature? 

Yes 4%, No 96% 

6. Would you favor the use of pre- 
existing Planned Parenthood materials 
and directions or prefer to set up a 
Campus Birth Control program inde- 
pendently? Planned Parenthood 39%, 
Campus Birth Control 61%. 

There was also a space for comments 
and quite a few poignant remarks were 
written. A few were pessimistic: "This 
survey is basically meaningless because 
the Board (of Trustees) would never 
allow it" and "We have to generate a 
lot of enthusiasm to get the program at 
this Church supported Jesus freak college." 
A valid comment on Question 1 was: 
"I am an R.N. studying at LVC and 
have been asked several times by stu- 
dents on birth control methods. This 
information is desperately needed on 
campus, without the fear of anyone 
passing judgement on these people. This 
information and contraceptives would 
only make those experiments safer and 
avoid any shot gun weddings, emotional 
trauma or even abortions." Many re- 
marks centered on the desire to have the 

program located in someplace other than 
the infirmary, such as: "I wouldn't go to 
the infirmary for fear of a breach of 
confidence", "It should be run by a 
physician", or ". . . by a selected 

student body". "The greater percentage, 
if not 100%, of the students are already 
legal adults in Pennsylvania; why not 
treat us that way?" was a comment 
referring to Question 3. The most com- 
ments, by far, however, pertained to 
"Moral Standards". Although one student 
stated that "It would tend to promote 
promiscuity", most, precisely 92%, stu- 
dents felt that no change would be 
effected and since sexual activity already 
goes on to quite a great extent, kids may 
as well be protected. One student even 
went so far as to say the moral standards 
at the College were healthy. 


Alpha Psi Omega, the dramatic fra- 
ternity at Lebanon Valley College, will 
present Arthur Miller's "The Crucible" 
on February 23 and 24 in the Allan W. 
Mund College Center Little Theatre at 
8:00 P.M. A 2:00 P.M. performance will 
be given on February 25. There will 
also be a performance at 2:00 P.M. on 
Saturday, February 24, for the con- 
venience of those who visit the College 
during the planned Parents' Day activ- 
ities that day. 

Few serious American playwrights 
have captured the imagination of the 
theatre public all over the world as has 
Arthur Miller with "The Crucible". In 
this dramatic presentation he turns to the 
days of the Salem witch trials, and 
brings into sharp focus an issue that 
still impedes the progress of American 
civilization -the problem of guilt by asso-

but any parent realizes that food, doc- 
tor, clothing, and misc. manage to eat 
$ 1000 rather quickly; it requires more 
than love to help your child develop as 
a healthy person, the kid needs some- 
thing in his stomach! Adoption? No, the 
agencies already have children who have- 
n't been adopted. . .my child won't be 
counted in the list of "unadopted." The 
decision revolved around the welfare of 
the three of us. Neither the father nor 
I wanted a marriage at this point in 
time; we just weren't ready to support a 

Before I went for the actual preg- 
nancy test, the father and I concluded 
that abortion would be best. I only had 
a week or two (the sooner the better) 
for the abortion, because I preferred 
vacuum aspiration (which is the safest 
method of abortion) and it can only be 
performed from 7-10 weeks. Aside from 
its being the safest method, it is also the 
least complicated: a vacuum machine 
loosens the fetus from the wall of the 
uterus and everything's over! The opera- 
tion takes a mere 3-5 minutes, and the 
only pain is a few minor cramps. 

I attended a clinic where each girl 
first attended a group session, then her 
private counselor came. The sessions 
were intensive -we were explained exact- 
ly what would happen. When a question 
or fear came up, our counselor replied 
to it. If we wished to, we could back 
out at any time, a release form was not 
signed until directly before the operation. 

I had the abortion. No regrets remain- 
the counselors were beautiful, under- 
standing people, and my post-operation 
attitude was one of total relief. I grow 
more relieved daily as I resume my for- 
mer routine at college. 

It happened at Lebanon Valley to me. 
Next could be someone you know: or, 
maybe you're a friend of mine and I 
didn't tell you. 

Shouldn't something be done?

Against Wilkes College this Saturday night will be the last time we 
will witness a performance of the 1972-73 LVC varsity basketball team 
on the home court. Actually it will be the swan song of a tandem of 
players that together have worked hard and successfully at their chosen 
sport for nearly four years. In nearly every game of this four year 
period, the fans could look forward to Kris Linde swishing from his 
outside corner, Ed Iannarella shooting from the head of the key to 
keep the defnese honest, and Don Johnson making yet another 
incredible variation of a layup to bring even a placid crowd to a 
standing ovation. 

Now, approaching the end of their academic careers, we find Donny 
rapidly closing in on Howie Landa's fantastic scoring accomplishment 
of over two decades ago. With a modicum of luck he should reach that 
magic mark during the Wilkes game. Ed has already notched his 500th 
career assist to become only the second person in the College's history 
to do so (Landa had 598). Kris has been the silent member of the 
triumvirate, ranking third in career scoring in LVC basketball history, 
yet many times not given the coverage he rightfully deserves. The key 
to the success of these three players' performance on the court rests 
in the word "teamwork"; unselfish practitioners of their craft. There 
is hot a prima donna among them; all work for the good of the team. 
This is not peculiar to the present LVC club, but fundamental to all- 
great teams in all sports. 

Over and over the word "team" is used and no one can neglect the 
fact that basketball consists upwards of as many as a dozen men adding 
support to the starting five. Certainly Ed, Don, and Kris could not have 
gotten where they are today without the high calibre help of Chip 
Etter, John Mardula, George Petrie, Bill Ammons, Ray Mitchell, Dave 
Evans, Charlie Brown, Ken Stoltz, etc., etc., etc. How can you praise 
the efforts of some without, hurting the feelings of others trying just as 
hard to accomplish the same end? However, it cannot be denied that 
Kris, Don, and Ed were catalysts without whom this year's tremendous 
record might never have been accomplished. 

It has been a great year made possible by a great team, perhaps the 
greatest team in Valley's history. What right have we to say this in 
light of the Landa team of the '50's? There is no way you can truly 
compare the two organizations. True, the figures of the Landa team 
might show some superiority but these are merely statistics which do 
not mean a thing when two teams play an emotional game on the court. 
Let us just say that we cannot live on the glories of the past. While 
Landa and his teammates may be the greatest team to those of a 
generation ago, the 1972-73 crew is the greatest to us today. We just 
want to thank Don, Kris, and Ed, and all the rest who served in any 
capacity in the basketball organization during the past four years 
(especially coaches Gaeckler and Sorrentino) for making our four years 
at Valley something to remember.

"What we 
We need you. " 

need money can't buy. 

-John Schmidt, Floyd Lit- 
tle, Milt Morin, and assort- 
ed other N.F.L. jocks 

-ben neideigh 

The above is easily recognized by any- 
one familiar with national television cov- 
erage of N.F.L. football. It is the catch 
phrase of the National Center for Volun- 
tary Action, an organization which re- 
cruits volunteer individuals to aid in ser- 
vices to the handicapped, the impoverish- 
ed, the underpriviledged, and the addict- 
ed, among others. It is a good organiza- 
tion and does the best it can to aid the 
people it attempts to serve. 

It's interesting to note that each year 
for the past several the N.F.L. has sup- 
ported a common charity. Are the coa- 
ches and players attempting to justify 
the existence of their particular vocation 
(in the face of rising criticism in the form 
of a rapidly growing anti-jock ethos 
spearheaded by Messers Meggysey, Sauer, 
Domres, and Bouton)? Are they trying to 
show us, the common rabble, that they 
can do something other than chasing 
footballs around patches of Astroturf 
and "hyperextending" their knees? Per- 
haps, perhaps. . . . 

Admittedly, I'm somewhat anti-foot- 
ball. Sure, I follow it closely and support 
wjth rabid abandon certain teams whose 
uniforms catch my eye (currently the 
Redskins and Steelers) but there are bet- 
ter sports. Football lacks, say, the grace 
and simplicity of basketball, the tradi- 
tional time-worn flavor of baseball, the 
speed and inferred stamina of soccer (no- 
ting wide receivers who "go long" on 
certain plays and return immediately to 
the bench for oxygen; they wouldn't last 
three minutes in a typical N.A.S.L. 
match.) And the individual sports, like 
boxing, bowling, tennis, and wrestling, 
have the appeal of the one-to-one con- 
frontation, the "essential struggle" as 
Heywood Hale Broun would put it. 
Football is mere violence between twen- 
ty two men at a time for short bursts 
followed by protracted periods of re- 
grouping. It is complicated by the addi- 
tion of an odd-shaped ball (not even 
closely resembling a respectable sphere) 
and a plethora of point values, measure- 
ments, formations in tricky geometric 
patterns, video taping machines and leg 
braces. Would that it had never suc- 
cumbed to the throes of modernity and 
stayed in its original rugby-like form. 
Unlike basketball, where modernization 
has served to simplify and speed up the 
game, football has been shackled by mod- 
ern rules and slowed to a commercially 
acceptable pace (facilitating the insertion 
of commercials.) It more than any other 
game can degenerate into a crashing bore 
with consummate ease. 

At any rate, the N.F.L. jocks are try- 
ing. Their game may be slipping into 
twentieth-century decadence, but by gol- 
ly their hearts are in the right places. 

The charities they support are benefi- 
cial and worthwhile. The unfortunate 
side of this situation, however, is that 
for some reason (maybe it's just me) 
a 250+ pound defensive tackle seated in 
an official club golf shirt before a T.V. 
camera crusading against, for example, 
drug abuse strikes me as being incredibly 
phoney, especially when one considers 
that this behemoth parading as the van- 
guard of the Sane Straight Society is 
probably so high on "greenies" and cor- 
tisone before he leaves the locker room 
that he imagines himself an invincible 
longhorn bull running full-tilt across a 
plain of paisley TartanTurf. 

There must be a charity that the N. 
F.L. jocks can support that will in no 
way be cheapened by their presence. 
And, sure enough, I've found it! It's 
called MINERVA. 

MINERVA is an acronym. It stands 
for A/ales /nvolved in the Neutralization, 
Eradication, and Repudiation of Wrgin- 

ity in America. It has the support of 
Masters & Johnson, Dr. David Reuben, 
and Cosmopolitan head honchoette Hel- 
en Gurley Brown. It is, of course, a non- 
profit organization, receiving its reward 
from services rendered to suffering vir- 
gins of either sex across the length and 
breadth of the continental United States, 
Hawaii, Alaska, tropical possessions, and 
military bases world-wide. Through the 
benevolence of an anonymous donor (i- 
dentified as a well-publicized member of 
the New York Jets starting backfield,) 
MINER VA has already begun its service 
to a needy nation. The first project was 
the establishment, construction, and out- 
fitting of the MINER VA National Vir- 
ginity Treatment Centre located in Bea- 
ver Falls, Pa. Operated by Administrative 
President Joseph Conforte (former 
"Chief of Staff" of the Mustang Bridge 
Ranch of Warshoe County, Nevada,) this 
modern facility is already manned by a 
rotating staff of surgically sterilized "mas- 
seurs" and "masseuses" selected from a 
pool of volunteers recruited from both 
the National Football League and the 
World Roller Derby Association. From 
now until April 1, for example, female 
patients will be under the expert care 
of the entire defensive line of the Phila- 
delphia Eagles, while males under treat- 
ment at the Centre will be ably served 
by a crew of Roller Derby All-Stars, 
including Joan Weston, Anne Calvello, 
and Irma Brown. In addition, contracts 
are being written up with members of 
other professions who wish to volunteer 
their services to the Centre. Some nota- 
bles already signed as volunteers are 
Joni Mitchell, Perry Como, Dick Cavett, 
W.A. "Tony" Boyle, Raymond P. Sha- 
fer, Steve Sills, Peggy Cass, Angela Davis, 
Mark Spitz, Bella Abzug, and the mem- 
bers of the Rolling Stones. Also, Rose 
Marie has volunteered her services as the 
1973 MINERVA poster girl. 

Furnishings at the centre include 
girls' quarters equipped with radiant 
heated water beds and stainless steel 
stirrups, a selection of wall-dispensed 

scents, a variety of sensuous appij ariCes 
including feathers, cat o'nine tails, tick 
ling devices, vibrating equipment, and 
dilators. The mens' quarters are equip pe( j 
with back issues of Playboy and M a 
tional Geographic, the 1973 Penthouse 
Pets calendar, surgical rubber gloves, and 
a gallon dispenser of Cornhusker's Lo- 

In addition, there are resident gy ne . 
cologists, eye, ear, nose, and throat 
specialists, linen changers, and priests on 
duty twenty-four hours a day. 

The MINERVA campaign for this 
year is "We want to stamp out useless 
virginity in your lifetime." To do this 
the board of advisors, headed by Hugh 
Hefner and Alex Karras, is preparing for 
July the MINERVA Home Treatment 
Kit. Available upon request by anyone 
either ten years of age or medically pub- 
escent (whichever comes first,) the kit 
will include the following: copies in hard 
binding of The Sensuous Woman and 
The Sensuous Man, biological diagrams 
the Holiday Inn National Address Direc- 
tory, and Esso Tourguide map of West- 
ern New York State with easiest access 
routes to Niagra Falls already plotted 

a leather-bound wedding service manual 
(non-denominational,) one p re-certified 
marriage license, two "one-size-f its-all" 

plastic wedding bands, various contra- 
ceptive devices, one pack Norforms, two 
quart bottles of Bali Hai, and a special 
two-record album, Great Seduction Songs 
of the Sixties, in 33 1/3, featuring "Break 
on Through" by the Doors, "I'm a King 
Bee (Buzzin' Round Your Hive") by the 
Rolling Stones, "Louie.Louie" by the 
Kingsmen, "Je T'Aime, Moi Non Plus" 
by Jane Birkin and Serge Gainsbourg, 
"Sex Machine" by Sly and the Family 
Stone and fifteen others. 

Finally, with each contribution of ten 
dollars or more to MINER VA, the con- 
tributor will receive a Spaulding football 
autographed by Pete Rozelle. 

And remember, if you don't do it, 
it won't get done. 

Editor, La Vie: 

Although the intent of the article 
in the issue of February 1 is some- 
what unclear to me, perhaps a few 
clarifying bits of information are in 

1. The LVC Health Center is lacking 
in sufficient staffing, equipment, and 
laboratory services necessary to support 
a contraceptive clinic. The best guess 
is that fewer than 250 students on a 
one-to-two time basis would utilize such 
a service. This makes the cost prohibitive, 
even if the venture had the support of 
the whole College community (It doesn't). 
The Health Center does have literature 

2. A Family Planning Center in Leba- 
non County, available to all residents of 
the county will be operative by Septem-: 
ber of 1973. Fees will be on a sliding 
scale basis. 

3. Some varieties of male and female 
contraceptives can be purchased at the 
local drugstore without prescription, 
wedding ring, or parental knowledge. 
Those who are casual dabblers probably 
should not use the contraceptives neces- 
sarily prescribed by a physician. Regular 
participants can visit nearby clinics, gyne- 
cologists, or generalists privately. Minors 
can contract for their own medical care. 

I'm sure it is simplistic, unrealistic, 
coy, and stressful to say so, but I feel 
constrained to murmur once again that 

not doing it doesn't make babies, either. 
This method is cheap and 100% effective. 

My perception is that the real prob- 
lem lies not in the availibility of contra- 
ceptives, but in the irresponsible, casual 
use of them. They are 100% ineffective 
in the bureau drawer. 

Most earnestly yours,

$ 557. about half the expected cost of an unstintingly luxurious stereo system, will now 
buy a stereo system that: 

Reproduces the entire range of musical frequencies at as high or low a sound level as 
you wish, in as big or small a living room as you wish. 

Has all the controls and facilities needed for full musical enjoyment, and all the provi- 
sions you might want for adding such niceties as headphones, a good cassette tape deck, 

or extra speakers for other rooms. 

Is both so excellent sounding and so durable that you won't be tempted to change any 
of the components for many years to come. 

Will probably make you happier overall than anything you've bought for a long, long 

The cost-no-object sound this system provides at a 
moderate price is the result of engineering that puts per- 
fromance ahead of frills. The renowned Advent Loud- 
speakers put out a maximum of sound with a minimum 
of fuss; countless owners and usually blase equipment 
reviewers have all commented that they sound like twice 
the price. The Sansui lOOOx AM/FM stereo receiver pro- 
vides the clean amplifier power (over 70 RMS watts of 
it) necessary to satisfy you and the Advents on the most 
demanding musical passages. Its sensitive AM/FM stereo 
tuner captures even the most elusive of your favorite sta- 
tions with clarity. The P.E. 3012 automatic turntable with 
a Shure M44E cartridge and diamond stylus will treat 

your valuable records with respect and will add no "rum- 
ble" or other annoying sounds of its own to the music. 

Since you are buying us along with our Advent/ San- 
sui/ P.E./ Shure system, it's worth knowing that we will 
cheerfully and speedily take care of anything that might 
break or turn out to have a hidden flaw in manufactur- 
ing. Specifically we guarantee all components for a period 
of two years. 

We've trimmed every ounce of fat from the price of 
this system: the $ 557 we're asking for it reflects a $ 65 
saving over the usual cost of the components individually. 

We invite you to visit us soon to hear how luxurious

20 AND 2 . 

W v w m 






by John Fenimore 

The Dutchmen grapplers ignited fol- 
lowing a disappointing 18-18 match with 
Moravian College last month, and have 
since exploded by blowing past oppo- 
nent after opponent, inflating their team 
record to 10-4-1 as of February 16. While 
on their way to winning 7 of their next 
8 matches, including 7 straight, the LVC 
matmen set several school records with 
line-ups bulging with underclassmen. 

The wrestlers finished off the month 
of January by blasting Messiah 39-9 
and easily disposing of U. of Maryland, 
Baltimore Campus, 30-0. The Dutchmen's 
next match proved to be their closest 
during their string of victories, prevailing 
over Johns Hopkins 18-16. LVC then 
proceeded past Monmouth (N.J.) on a 
forfeit, and upended Lehigh Community 
College, Haverford, and Western Maryland 
without much difficulty. 

A week ago Wednesday, the Dutchmen 
travelled to Swarthmore to face a squad 
that hasn't lost a dual meet since mid- 
winter, 1971. LVC came close but fell 
on the short side of a 20-19 score. By 
beating the Dutchmen, Swarthmore 
upped its record this season to 10-0, 
but two of its previously undefeated 
wrestlers were toppled from the unbeaten 
ranks as both Chet Mosteller and Al 

Shortell turned spoiler. 

From the time of the Moravian match, 
wrestlers who have been the most im- 
pressive for the Dutchmen include Neil 
Fasnacht, who is 7-0 since then, George 
Kline, who has won six of his last seven, 
and Doren Leathers, who has come out 
on top of five of his last seven oppo- 
nents. Chet Mosteller, Al Shortell, and 
Steve Sanko all have been 5-1 since the 
turning point of the season, while Guy 
Lesser has won all three of his matches 
and John Fechisin both of his. 

Last Saturday LVC undoubtedly met 
their toughest foe of the season in Eliza- 
bethtown at a quadrangular meet held at 
E-town. Besides facing the unbeaten and 
extremely talented E-town squad, the 
Dutchmen were also to be faced by 
Muhlenburg and Juniata. 

This weekend concludes the mat sea- 
son for 1972-73 at Widener College where 
the Middle Atlantic Conference cham- 
pionships are to be held.

Math Club 



Beginning February 15, 1973, the 
Lebanon Valley Math Club will sponsor 
an interscholastic math competition in- 
volving five area high schools. Of the 
area high schools invited, the following 
will participate: Annville-Cleona, Cedar 
Crest, Hershey, Lebanon Catholic, and 
Northern Lebanon. The competition will 
be held every Thursday for five weeks 
at Lebanon Valley College with prizes 
being awarded to the top team. 

On a round-robin basis, four schools 
will compete in a match consisting of 
three rounds. In the first and third 
rounds, students are expected to answer 
questions having a value of 1-4 points 
within a certain amount of time. The 
second round is an individual team 
"lightning round" where each team has 
the chance to accumulate points. The 
questions will be asked from the areas 
of high school algebra, geometry, and 

This tournament is designed to pro- 
mote interest in mathematics and to 
allow the math departments of various 
high schools to compete academically. 
The Math Club is happy to host this 
competition, and they hope that it will 
be an annual success.

The Lebanon Valley Flying Dutch- 
men may no longer be undefeated, but 
ironically enough, their only losing 
effort to date may in retrospect prove 
to have been the turning point of the 
entire season. After a smashing victory 
over Towson State, the squad appeared 
to lose steam rapidly. That Monday's 
key game against Albright was a reason- 
ably well played effort despite a distress- 
ingly large number of turnovers, but 
the encounter seemed to begin a period 
during which the Dutchmen appeared 
to let up somewhat in the second half 
of play. Five days later the squad jumped 
off to a substantial halftime margin 
against a relatively weak team (Swarth- 
more) but was held even after inter- 
mission, while against Franklin and 

Intra murals : 
The Second 

by Jim Katzaman 

The second season of the intramural 
basketball competition will be over next 
week and the only thing on the line is 
prestige. The supremacy points have 
already been awarded (10 apiece to Kalo, 
Philo, and Residents) with only one 
question remaining to be decided: Which 
team, if any, will dethrone the Geritol- 
for-lunch bunch, alias the Faculty? 

Again showing no end to my maso- 
chism, I venture some predictions. This 
is even more foolish than you can 
imagine, since by the time this article 
appears, the quarter-final matchups will 
already have been played. What it a- 
mounts to is my saying who won and 
hoping that they did. Be that as it may... 

Residents A beat Frosh B-it wasn't 
even close! 

Kalo A probably put the screws to 
Residents B using the skills of Henckler, 
Schwarz, Rutherford, Zingg, and Moyer 

Unless Frosh A played over their 
heads, the five old men should have 
notched another victory on their record. 

With the four point home court 
advantage, Philo should have driven the 
Commuters right off the court. 

As I said, all of that should have 
happened or I might find myself taking 
an early spring vacation. 

In the future it appears that with the 
aid of Schwarz (who did not play in 
their first meeting), Kalo will edge out 
Residents A. The big question mark 
hovers over whether the Faculty will 
activate Lou Sorrentino from the taxi 
squad to utilize his deadly hook shot in 
aid of Jack the Machine's "driving, twist- 
ing, turning'Mayups and Rinso Marquette's 
ever present and dangerous outside shot. 
If Sorrentino does not play, then it 
appears that the elder statesmen of the 
court will fall victim to Scott Hazel 
and his Purple Gang. In fact, the creaky 
jointed jumpers may even fall to the 
resurging Residents A in the consolation 
game as "Big" John Buckfelder, "Derick" 
Craig Anderson, and "Hot" Rod Shane 
look for a final victory to close out 
their collegiate careers. 

Anticipating a Philo-Kalo confronta- 
tion in the final game, Kalo won before 
and they can win again (probably on a 
disputed goal tending call in overtime). 

So, there you have it. Remember 
the important thing is not which frat 
dftes or does not win, but that the old

Marshall, whom the Dutchmen annj 
hilated in the Sponangle Tourney, ^ 
opposition seized the monentum in § 
final stanza and held it until a doubi e 
technical stopped their drive. In t h e 
John Hopkins game, midnight finally 
came, as the formerly fast - breaking 
Dutchmen were transformed into a mere 
collection of mortals whose outside 
shots failed to go in and whose efforts 
to rebound those errant shots were 
for the most part, unsuccessful. In f acl 
only a last-minute desperation surge 
kept the score within reason. The bene- 
ficial effects of this trauma were ap. 
parent, and Muhlenburg happened to be 
in the unfortunate position of being 
the next team on the LVC schedule 
The Dutchmen didn't just beat the 
Mules, they positively humiliated them 
scoring 110 points (and a team record 
53 field goals) with no apparent diffi- 
culty. After winding up the road swing 
with an efficient, if not inspiring, 91-78 
decision over Washignton College, the 
team returned home before another 
packed house for the eagerly-awaited 
showdown with Widener, last year's 
and this year's leading Southern Division 
team. This was billed as a battle between 
the high-powered Valley offense and 
the stingy Widener defense, but in the 
end it was the defense of the Dutchmen 
that held the day. After registering a 
30-23 halftime lead, the team broke loose 
in the second half, opened up a 44-26 
margin, and Widener was unable to 
recover. The Dutchmen's 76-55 win was 
spearheaded offinsively by Don Johnson 
(24 points) and Kris Linde (19). 

And last week saw the squad register their 
19th and 20th victories of the year, 
over Moravian and Susquehanna, respec- 
tively. In the Moravian encounter the 
squad looked horrendous, to say the 
least, in the early going, and led by 
only 28-21 at the half, but Johnson & 
company turned it on in the late 
stages to notch a highly respactable 
80-46 triumph. Last Thursday the Dutch- 
men trailed for most of the first half 
after scoring the first four points, but 
11 straight tallies at the end of the 
stanza gave Valley a 39-33 midgame 
margin. The Crusaders stayed close for 
most of the second half until a 17-2 
streak gave the Dutchmen an insur- 
mountable 85-60 bulge. At the buzzer 
the score read LVC 89, Susquehanna 
76. Kris Linde led the Dutchmen with 
27 points, followed by Johnson with 19, 
Ed Iannarella(12), and Ray Mitchell (10). 

As of this writing, LVC and Widener 
seem assured of making the divisional 
playoffs, with Muhlenberg, Dickinson, 
and Johns Hopkins battling for the 
remaining berths. The winner will meet 
its Northern Division counterpart, which 
is likely to be Philadelphia Textile, ranked 
among the top ten small-college fives in 
the nation. Individually, Ed Iannarella 
chalked up his 500th career assist against 
Widener, while Kris Linde has moved into 
third place in the aft-time LVC scoring 
race. Don Johnson, of course, is still in 
contention for the top spot, needing 
74 points to tie Howie Landa for first-

A Capable Version of a Difficult Tragedy.

TEE CRUCIBLE 1 two views 

by Dr. John Kearney 

Alpha Psi Omega's production of The 
Crucible over Parents' Weekend was a 
capable version of a difficult tragedy. 
That it did not attain the tragic experi- 
ence latent within Arthur Miller's play, 
("Gaiety transfiguring all that dread" as 
Yeats defines it) was almost inevitable 
with such a large amateur cast. Such 
tragic triumphs are so rare-and audien- 
ces that can bear them even rarer-that it 
is far better to accept gratefully what a 
given group has been able to realize in 
the play. The Crucible was an ambitious 
selection, and a partial success with it is 
m ore enjoyable, instructive, and valuable 
than a more complete success with a les- 
ser vehicle like The Odd Couple or Cam- 

What prevented the tragic emotions 
from being fully realized can be simply 
stated. The bad guys weren't bad enough. 
Much of the fearlessness of the play is 
'ost if We can dj sm i ss the Salem witch 
tr 'als as the aberration of peevish, asinine 
People who offer no threat to our own 

br 'ght confidence". We good Americans,

I wish to preface this review with a 
couple of related statements. First, this 
review is directed specifically at those 
who witnessed the Alphe Psi Omega pro- 
duction of The Crucible and is intended 
to pose some questions about that pro- 
duction that can only be adequately de- 
bated by those who saw it and/or are fa- 
miliar with the play by previous experi- 
ence. This review will not encapsulate 
any of the action for the reader; it is 
not a plot summary and I fear those who 
expect such will be disappointed. Second, 
I pose this main question which may or 
may not preclude further meaningful dis- 
cussion: Should a play possessing the 
raw emotional power and the rigorous 
acting demands found in The Crucible 
be attempted by less than a professional, 
trained actor's company or cast. Ob- 
viously the purpose of any collegiate 
dramatic organization is to strive, to at- 
tempt to do justice to the highest quality 
plays available, to avoid the saccharine 
"Mouse That Roared" lockstep; however, 
no matter how "noble" the aspirations 
of the collegiate group, there must be a 
recognition of personal and group limita- 
tions. Is it better to try the "impossible" 
and fall short or to select works within 
the group's limitations and succeed fa la 
Hello, Dolly ! or Camelot)1 I have no ans- 
wer for the time being. 

With that in mind, on to the Alpha 
Psi Omega production itself. 

Arthur Miller, in writing The Crucible 
kept in mind not only the necessary de- 
tails of the Salem witch trials of 1692 
but a fine sense of structure as well. As 
I perceive the play, tension builds from 
the opening words and is never slackened 
until the curtain at the close of the last 
act. The absolute climax comes at the 
end with Proctor's hanging off-stage and 
Elizabeth's refusal to have him belie his 
truth. There is no unraveling. The play 
ends suspended, unresolved. What of pa- 
ris? What of Hale? What of the inquisi- 
tors? What of the remaining condemned? 

There are no answers, no conventional 
denouement. In addition, I see the end- 
ings of each act, the final minutes of 
each, as sub-climaxes unto the acts them- 
selves, again without following unravel- 
ing. Each of these sub-climaxes serves to 
add a final boost to raise the level of 
dramatic tension for the ensuing acts. 
For example, the shrieking of Abigail and 
Betty at the end of Act I and the accep- 
tance of their false accusations as the 
will of God builds to a dense frenzy 
which flows perfectly into the pressuri- 
zed, powder-keg atmosphere of the Proc- 
tor household and the suspicions and 
shortcomings of Elizabeth as a wife in 

Act II. There is no slacking of pressure 
or tension, but simply a transference of 
"feel" from the explosive action of the 
Parris bedroom to the quiet, submerged 
volatility of the Proctor home, which in 
turn erupts with the seizure of Elizabeth 
by the court that leads into the turmoil 
of the court itself (Act III). By Act IV, 
the tension, reinforced by the cold, dark- 
ness, and stench of the jail cell, is, if 
acted properly, almost unbearable. 

The cast of Alpha Psi Omega's Cru- 
cible was successful in this dramatic 
"pressurization" simply because the ends 
of each of the four acts were extremely 
powerful. Much of the credit for the po- 
wer of the closings of each of the four 
acts must go to the direction of Rebecca 
be carefully blocked and the actors them- 
selves must be directed to express vocal- 
ly and physically a greater emotional 
state than they will probably ever ah 
state than they will probably ever have 
to face in reality. It is the director's 
task to evoke these responses and Miss 
Bushong did the task well. It is sad that 
the earlier action of both of the first two 
scenes was not of the same high quality. 
Much of the ineffectuality of the pre- 
liminary action seemed to fall on the mi- 
nor characters; the Putnams, among the 
others, stood out as particularly poorly- 
played roles. Their voices were lifeless,

Well, the 1972-73 basketball season 
is finally over for the Flying Dutchmen, 
but no one could claim that Coach Lou 
Sorrentino's rookie year was anything 
less than a resounding success. The 
Dutchmen went into the finals of the 
MAC Southern Division playoffs with a 

bang, trouncing Muhlenberg 98-60 in a 
game which saw senior All-American 

Don Johnson finally break Howie Lan- 
da's all-time college scoring mark. Against 
Widener the Dutchmen found another 
way to win, scoring the last seven points

Come to 
The Festival 

by Greg Boyd 

Know what's more .exciting than a 
weekend away from Lebanon Valley 
College?. ...try a weekend on campus 
for the Third Annual Spring Arts Festi- 
val being held April 27, 28, and 29! In 
case you're a freshman or new to the 
school, or even if that's not the case, 
and if you've never heard of a Spring 
Arts Festival, it consists of experiences 
in all areas of the Arts for everybody. 

For those of you who are turned on 
by ballet, the Hershey Ballet Company 
will be showing us what they can do. 
Or, if you've never heard of a "plier", 
then there's always the square dance 
with Bert Wittenberg (remember the 
Frosh square dance?) For the classical 
music bug, various classical groups will 
be performing, and, for the "childish-at- 
heart", there will be cornstarch parties 
throughout the day. Never heard of a 
cornstarch party?. . . .come and find out 
what it is! 

If none of the aforesaid excite you, 
there certainly will be something to tic- 
kle your fancy -a drama competition, a 
performance of "Two By Two", rock 
bands, concert choirs, Juried Art and 
Craft Shows, jazz bands, a percussion 
ensemble, and much more. 

And, by the way, due to the expan- 
sion of the program since last year, the 
Festival Committee has been bogged 
down with tremendous work loads and 
are seeking relief. Anyone who can pos- 
sibly help is asked to contact Vicki Han- 
cock (Festival coordinator), Don Frantz, 
or anyone on the Festival committee. If 
you're too shy or don't know any of 
these people, there are forms at the Cen- 
ter reception desk to fill out. 

So all you people who are tired of 
spending a typical Valley weekend drink- 
ing in the local "pub", come out and 
get your thrills at the Spring Arts Fest- 
ival. . . .then go down to Rich's ! 

the group, said the service will be 
available to all Lebanon County resi- 

In addition, Shenk said registrations 
are expected to begin in June at the 
administrative location of the proposed 
health service, 411 N. Eighth St., the 
location of Lutheran and Catholic 
Social Service agencies. 

The Lebanon Family Planning Service 
is being formed as a non-profit corpora- 
tion for the following purposes: 

To promote maternal health by 
means of optimum child spacing. 

To provide educational information 
on the availability and advantages of 
family planning. 

To help childless couples have chil- 
dren, through referral. 

To provide information, supplies, and 
services on all methods of birth control, 
including rhythm, to those who volun- 
tarily participate in the program. 

To provide medical supervision, coun- 
seling and follow-up services to partici- 

To promote public understanding of 
family planning as a contributing ele- 
ment of responsible parenthood. 

To function as a non-profit health 
and social service organization to pro- 
mote interest in and knowledge of fam- 
ily planning and life throughout Lebanon 
County in cooperation with other human 
resources within the community. 

To offer pre-marital consultation and 
marriage counseling relative to family 

During Tuesday's meeting the steering 
committee approved a contract which is 
being submitted to the State Depart- 
ment of Health for funding of the 
local service. 


Sociology students from Lebanon 
Valley College will conduct the second 
annual Sociology Symposium for High 
School students on Saturday, March 24 
in Miller Chapel. Over 100 students from 
the central Pennsylvania area are ex- 
pected to attend. 

The seminar, which is designed to 
give high school students a look at the 
various aspects of sociology and social 
welfare, will consist of workshops staffed 
entirely by LVC sociology students, and 
a panel discussion on the topic "The 
State Correctional Institution: The Inside 
Speaks Out." 

Registration will begin at 8:45 A.M.

The Student Senate at Lebanon Valley once again is making a 
yearly ritual— poking its head out of its meeting room to see if it has 
enough influence to cast a shadow upon the student body and the 
administration. If it sees its shadow it basks for a short time in self 
esteem, then proceeds to reenter its cubicle. This tells everyone that 
the next student government issue and student power controversy is 
only twelve months away. 

If the Senate does not see its shadow, then it seeks to create one 
by changing the climate of Valley's dead campus and verbalize on 
subjects striking at the heart of LVC's (non)involvement: "Sex and 

This year was a bad year for the Senate to try to find its shadow, 
its symbol of a congealed mass representative of the student body. 
Yes, the Senate exists but what does it do? It passes judgement on 
persons who do not abide by the laws it creates for the welfare of 
the student body. The Senate can create laws and can punish for having 
broken laws. Such is not a glamorous line of work nor conducive to 
creating headline-making material for newspapers reaching all segments 
of the student population. With this in mind, in order to create a 
noticeable image of itself, our Senate occasionally strikes out at 
institutional policy over which they have time and again been ruled by 
the Executive Committee to have limited authority. Senators can act 
only within guidelines set down by the Committee. Any action taken 
beyond the limits of these guidelines is considered illegal by the 
Committee and the administration. 

Considering the actions taken by the Senate in its unilaterally 
setting up new illegal extensions of intervisitation hours, then backing 
them up saying they will not prosecute anyone who violates the old 
rules which are still legally binding; all this in light of past stands 
of the administration and trustees, too ominously carries with it the 
odor of a publicity gimmick, something to insure the world that the 
Senate is still alive and serving the interests of the student body. We 
hope this is not the case. 

One of the things that seems strange about the whole intervisitation 
hours affair is where is the Student Council throughout this whole 
thing? Certainly the Senate has heard of claiming unity through 
numbers. How can one segment of student government make any 
progress while the other remains noticeably silent? Cannot the Council 
organize itself to take some stand on the question being raised? Council 
being an equal member of student government along with the Senate 
owes it to the student body to air its views on "important subjects". 
For what other reason do we elect them if not to represent us? 
Perhaps it does not consider intervisitation and drinking regulations 
"important" enough for consideration. That is its prerogative. One can 
only wonder what such an apparently divided opinion on what is or is 
not "important" can have on the attitude of the trustees. 

Fortunately, the Senate has shown some common sense by now a- 
greeing to enforce the present intervisitation rules while its actions are 
under appeal by Dean Marquette to the Executive Committee. We 
strongly suspect that the decision of the Committee will go against the 
Senate saying that the senators did not have the legal power to act in 
the way it did and that the old intervisitation rules shall remain in ef- 
fect. Until everything is done the Senate will have had its moment in 
the sun and crawled back into its burrow to await next season's storm-

earlier. True, he is an ass throughout, but 
in the beginning he should be a powerful 
ass, insisting on the dignity of his L66 
Harvard degree. Abigail Williams (played 
by Janice Miles) was not whore enough. 
In the key scene with John Proctor she 
was too demure, too much the sweet 
young beauty hopelessly in love with the 
unavailable hero. But there must be no 
love about Abigail Williams, only lust and 
ambition. Miss Miles did not use her body 
aggressively enough to make us feel what 
a worthless slut Abigail is, as we must to 
fear the terrible power she comes to 

Although the frightfulness of creden- 
tialed and established folly was not ade- 
quately set in Act I, the goodness of the 
decent people was. Tituba's (Joy Hoff- 
man) panic was convincing, and Rebecca 
Nurse's (Mary DeLoache) calm sweetness 

showed us where sanity and Christianity 
resided in Salem. Don Frantz hit Giles 
Corey's crotchety, quirky character per- 
fectly, even managing to carry off that 
odd twist when he turns momentarily to 
Rev. Parris's side. 

With Act II the real strength of the 
play began. The frenzy at the end of the 
first act was finely counterpointed by the 
constrained quiet of the Proctor farm- 
house. The woody warmth of the set (by 
far the best designed of the three) and 
the opening dialogue between John and 
Elizabeth established irrevocably that 
here there was goodliness and godliness- 
crops being grown, children raised, and a 
marriage forged. The measure of Mar- 
gret Whorl's and Joseph Garguilo's fine 
acting was that within this overall bles- 
sedness they could make clear the ten- 
sion between them, the strain Elizabeth 
would confess late made the "cold house" 


Editor, La Vie: 

I, being a poor, starving college stu- 
dent helping work my way through 
school in the library was there earning 
my wages one morning, becoming more 
and more famished as each minute pass- 
ed by. I was really beginning to look for- 
ward to the cafeteria's luncheon special, 
Chicken a la King. Finally I was done 
with work, and proceeded to dash over 
to the cafeteria to partake of one of my 
favorite luncheon dishes. To my dismay 
the lunch line was rather long, but it was 
well worth the wait for chicken a la king. 
I could almost taste it! Slowly the line 
inched forward. Almost there! Suddenly 
the line stopped! What had happened? 
The word was out, the cafeteria had run 
out of their special, absolutely no more 
chicken ala king! To my delight we 
were being served scanty portions of 
cold sliced ham. Super! Not being one 
of the world's biggest fans of cold ham, 
I angrily elected to have a peanut butter 
sandwich. As peanut butter sandwiches 
go, it was a fairly decent peanut butter 
sandwich, but peanut butter sandwiches 
aren't included on my list of ten favor- 
ite foods either. I gulped the sandwich 
down, but peanut butter sandwiches 
don't go down as easily as chicken a la 
king (much to my dismay), so a glob 
of peanut butter remained in my throat 
for a while. Down-hearted and still hun- 
gry I angrily proceeded back to my room, 
complaining about the lousy lunch all 
the way back. 

Well, fortunately or unfortunately, 
however you may wish to view the situ- 
ation, I slept through supper, a delightful 
feast of ham (!) and fish. That wasn't 
as great a disappointment as missing 
lunch, but to make up for missing a 
meal my roommate and I feasted at 
the snack shop. That was a really great 
meal! Happy once again we started back 
to our room. We paused for a moment 
to read the announcement on the main 
bulletin board to keep abreast of all the 
current events at the Valley. One of the 
more prominent notices on the board was 
concerned with the increase of tuition 
and fees for the up-coming school year. 
Increases in tuition are understandable 
for an institution of this sort, so that 
did not disturb us too greatly. But, this 
increase was itemized, and in order to be- 
come better informed college students 
we wanted to know just where our mon- 
ey was going. Every increase seemed 
quite legitimate to us until we came to 
the real shocker-board (meals) was being 
raised $60.00 (Yes, sixty dollars!) On 
careful observation we have approximate- 
ly 200 days a year here at the Valley, 
including all weekends and most days of 
exam periods. This is an increase of ap- 
proximately 33^ a day. I don't really 
know, but it seems as if a peanut butter 
sandwich and a glass of chocolate milk 
(manufactured in quantity) is worth lit- 
tle more than thirty-five cents. 

What I would like to say now is that 

I think it would be most beneficial, 
(and fair) to a number of students if we 
were charged only for the meals we act- 
ually eat. We are charged some $ 700.00 
for board, (an average of $2.50 a day), 
but what I would like to know, where 
does the remaining $ 2.15 for that day 
go? I personally know of very few people 
who eat all three meals a day; I know 
I seldom get my $ 2.50 worth on any 
given day. We students would like it to 
be considered to have meal tickets or 
some other method of paying only for 
the meals actually consumed. It seems 
most unfair to have to pay for break- 
fast which we never eat, and for half of 
the suppers which we can't digest. On 
the whole Mr. Landis and the cafeteria 
staff is doing an admirable job with the 
meals, but it is not ethical to pay for 
what we don't actually eat. 

Respectfully submitted by 
a loyal food fan, 

Nancy Johnson

Service is being there when you're 
most needed. 

Friendship is offering a helping hand 
or a sympathetic ear without being 

Equality is doing these things when 
and where they must be done, without 
thought to why you're doing them. 

Add these three things together and 
you have a picture of the national wo- 
men's service sorority . Gamma Sigma Sig- 
ma is that sorority, ready to celebrate 
on a hundred campuses, its first 20 years 
of work in the spirit of service, friend- 
ship and equality. 

It can mean visiting hospitals, 
nursing homes, veterans' institutions, day 
care centers, camps. . .almost every con- 
ceivable type of program -held anywhere 
in the area of a Gamma Sig chapter which 
provides a vital service to those who are 
ill or less fortunate. The members can 
lead discussion groups, help kids play, 
run parties, help disabled persons eat, 
walk or learn special skills, read to the 
blind, teach the handicapped, help with 
recreation for the elderly, run car washes 
and bake sales and contests to raise mon- 
ey for benefits. . .the list is endless. 

Take the efforts of all these women in 
one year and multiply it by 20 and the 
result is a very big anniversary which 
Gamma Sigma Sigma will be celebrating.

that drove her husband to lechery, it ^ a 
painful to see the "everlasting funeral" 
marching about the heart of this g 00( j 
woman as, in spite of herself, she probed 
the edges of their common wound, John's 
long repented lust with Abigail. It \ Va 
painful to see John struggling with his 
impatience at their bungling huswif erv 
and failing to control his anger at her 
unjust suspicions. Husband and wife com 
ing together over the one commandment 
John has forgotten, adultery, and hi 
plaint -"I think it be a small fault, Mi- 
ter!"- was a fine scene. 

Reverend John Hale's role was a dif- 
ficult one, perhaps the most difficult in 
the play. He is a bookish man who at 
first thinks he can both serve and con- 
trol the inquisitors by his academic pre- 
cision but who is soon swept aside by 
the irrational passions unleashed by the 
court. His shift from one camp to the 
other is a perplexing one, comprehensible 
only if there is an earnest strength in 
all his troubled searchings after this most 
"precise" devil. 

Kevin Pry coped manfully with this 
challenging part but was handicapped by 
an unfortunate costume and by his short 
stature, which he was not quite able to 
convert into a cocky asset. The shrill 
note of desperation entered his voice too 
soon and too prevailingly in the play. 
In the second half this was not a fault 
but in Act II Hale's pedantic sureness 
was not solid enough to discomfit Proc- 
tor's common sense. His reply to Proc- 
tor's plaint after missing the command- 
ment -"Theology, sir, is a fortress; no 
crack in a fortress may be accounted 
small"-should stir the same blank fear 
in Proctor as the like metaphors of our 
own pious stupidities (rotten apples, iron 
curtains, dominoes) should stir in us. 
But it did not and so again the terror so 
necessary to the play's effect, the night- 
mare terror of intelligence unable to mas- 
ter stupidity, was not quite achieved. 

With the eruption of Deputy Gover- 
nor Danforth (Ed Donnelly) into the 
vestry room in Act III that terror at 
last began to take proper shape. Mr. 
Donnelly looked and acted the right age, 
his voice commanded attention, and by 
simply sitting straight on the bench he 
announced who was in charge in the 
room. The frantic interplay among the 
principals was well done, and the tragic 
triangle set up when Danforth questioned 
Elizabeth was excellent. Mr. Donnelly 
gave Danforth all the obtuse sureness 
of the true believer so that the dramatic 
irony latent in the part came through 
well as when his rebuke to Rev. Hale, 
"You are most bewildered;'' was follow- 
ed by the look on his face when Abi- 
gail led the girls in their frenzy. 

The fine irony of Act IV, in which 
the now desperate inquisitors turn to 
their victims to bail them out of their 
untenable position by confessing, a' s0 
came alive. Once again a counterpoint 
in tempo was very telling as the bluster 
and panic of the court was followed by 
the near silence of John and Elizabeth 
trying to absorb the living they had been 
shut off from. John Proctor's search for 
his identity, moving form the weak hon- 
esty of "I will have my life" to the agon; 
ized question "What is John Proctor, 
then to his discovery of his own go 0(i ' 
ness, embodies a good deal of the spit 
itual history, not only of the seventeen^ 
century, but even more of the twentie' 1 ' 
and Mr. Garguilo helped realize it

carried off his character's similar trans- 
formation (motivated in this case by 
conscience rather than fear and self- 
pity) quite well. Mr. Pry was not nearly 
as successful as Mr. Fuller, however, and 
his failure was largely one of stature and 
voice. Mr. Pry was simply too short, and 
their physical motions static and mech- 
anical (why is it that so many collegiate 
actors don't know what to do with their 
arms?). Compare their characterizations 
with Donald Frantz's portrayal of Giles 
Corey. Mr. Frantz infused in his Corey 
an air of cantankerousness, playful senili- 
ty (perhaps), and the gentle wisdom of 
age that, when juxtaposed over the trag- 
edy facing the old man (specifically the ar- 
rest of his wife on charges trumped up 
from his mention of "strange books" to 
Rev. Hale), evoked a wrenching emo- 
tional response. Reinforced strongly by 
Mr. Frantz's vocal affectations and ap- 
propriate gestures and motions, the char- 
acter of Corey came closer than any 
other to actual reincarnation onstage. 

All in all, his was the best-acted role I 

One obvious liability of any drama- 
tic production at a college the size of 
LVC is the lack of a large body of ac- 
tors from which to choose, and the re- 
sulting difficulty in making close matches 
of actor and character. Recall the two 
ministers in Alpha Psi Omega's Crucible. 
Lou Fuller did a creditable job of acting 
out the vacillating paranoia of Rev. Par- 
ris. Parris is a hard character to portray; 
one must keep emphasizing his overrid- 
ing motive of self-preservation (in both 
honor, and, by Act IV, body) in order 
to bring off his shift from vicious inquis- 
itor to a supporter of "false confession" 
(rather than the politically-dangerous 
hangings scheduled). Mr. Fuller, through 
a combination of voice and nervous move- 
ment, fleshed out his Parris well enough 
to succeed. He is not a formidable ac- 
tor, but competent and adequate. Kevin 
Pry, on the other hand, seems to pos- 
sess that intangible quality that, if well 
developed, separates the competent ac- 
tor from the superior actor. He played 
Rev. Hale with intensity and fire, and

his voice too strident and shrill, to be 
believable. He seemed to be miscast, and 
for all of his obvious ability he was none- 
theless inable to evoke a formidable, 
bantam-like air from his voice and action. 
A short Hale could be successful if 
played with deep-throated bravado, and 
perhaps added work on vocal expression 
could have made Mr. Pry's effort more 

The best solution, however, would 
have been to re-cast the role ol Rev. Hale. 
Who could have played it? I don't know. 
The logical candidate would be Ed Don- 
nelly, but then again. . .he was quite 
good as Deputy Governor Danforth, able 
to command the attention of the con- 
fused court by his simple, blocky pos- 
ture when seated on the bench and his 
deep, haughty voice. Both the Deputy 
Gov. and Rev. Hale exhibit a quality of 
self-assuredness early in their appearan- 
ces that leads me to believe that Mr. 
Donnelly could have handled the charac- 
ter of Hale well in the opening acts. 
Could he have pulled off the transforma- 
tion, however? I am not convinced that 
he could. Mr. Donnelly is a good charac- 
ter actor, but I suspect his adaptability 
to a dramatic lead. This is not a judge- 
ment on his ability (which he possesses 
in quantity), but rather of his image. 

Perhaps Joseph Gargiulo, Alpha Psi's 
Proctor, would have fared better as Hale. 
His vocal richness and power (his long 
suit as an actor) would have evoked the 
bantam air I mentioned earlier and 
would have probably held him in better 
stead than it did as Proctor. In the role 
of Proctor, he seemed to rely too much 
on his voice for emotion. His gesturing 
was oddly jerky, lacking the fluidity his 
role demanded, and often contrasted the 
emotion his voice was evoking, rather 
than acting as reinforcement. He seemed 
to lack direction and was to me a disap- 
pointment. He also suffered from poor 
diction in the first two acts, especially 
when attempting to evoke rage, and as a 
result some of his lines were rendered 
unintelligible. A pity. 

Of the women's roles, I was most im- 
pressed with Peggy Whorl's rendering of 
Elizabeth Proctor. Her quiet, tense por- 
trayal of this pathetic example of Puri- 
tam womanhood was both appropriate 
and effective, and made a success of an 
otherwise choppy and disjointed Act II. 
The role of Abigail Williams was played 
with competence by Janice Miles in that 
it emphasized her ability to make fools 
of the court with her charade against the 
townspeople, but Miss Miles' Abigail 
seemed to lace the sluttiness needed to 
fill out the totality of Abigail's wicked- 
ness. With regard to John Proctor, Miss 
Miles played Abigail as a star-struck, 
love-sick adolescent (notably in their en- 
counter in Act I) with little if any em- 
phasis on Abigail's harlotry. This dimen- 
sion was sadly missed. 

There is much more that I want to 
say that space will not permit. Let me 
suffice with this: I love The Crucible as 
both a play and a commentary on both 
the times of the Puritans and the McCar- 
thy ear (in which it was written.) It is 
powerful, provocative, brilliantly con- 
ceived and masterfully written . It deserves 
as close to a perfect presentation as pos- 
sible to do it justice. I feel Alpha Psi 
Omega tried very hard. I credit Rebecca 
Bushong with an excellent directing ef- 
fort, I laud Robert Jonston's beautiful 
and technically intriguing set, I applaud 
the actors and actresses and stage hands 
and producers and prompters and cos- 
turners who participated. I laud them for 
the attempt, and what success they did 
achieve, in hopes that all hve learned 
from it. I thank them for a presentation, 
that, on a whole, achieved the power and 
dramatic effect necessary to make The 
Crucible work.

of the game to register a heart stopping 
61-59 triumph. 

Muhlenberg, a team which had been 
annihilated earlier in the season by the 
Dutchmen's top offensive performance 
of the year, might have done well to 
emulate Dickinson, whose slowdown 
tactics against Widener in the first game 
of the doubleheader had some success 
(they trailed only 12-8 at halftime) 
before the Pioneers finally scored a 
38-26 triumph. The Mules, however, 
preferred to play conventional basket- 
ball, and they managed to hang in for 
most of the first half before their 
offense collapsed, allowing the Valley to 
run off ten straight points for a 38-23 
lead. The Dutchmen maintained this 
15-point edge at halftime, 44-29, and 
proceeded to outscore the Mules 13-2 
in the first few minutes of the second 
stanza to virtually put the game on ice. 
Everyone's attention then turned to 

Johnson, who had scored a modest 
total of seven first-half points. The 

second half, though, was a different 
story, as the 6-3 forward from Baltimore 
finally found the range. The tension 
mounted as Johnson pushed closer to the 
mark, and with 2:27 left Donny at last 
hit the bucket which put him ahead of 
Landa as the fans went wild. Needless 
to say, the remainder of the game was 
strictly anti-climatic. For the record, 
the final score read LVC 98, Muhlenburg 
60. Johnson and Kris Linde led the 
Valley attack with 26 and 16 tallies 
respectively, as well as contributing 
substantially to the squad's commanding 
78-39 edge on the boards. Joe Paul led 
the Mules with 13 points. 

On Saturday night, though, it looked 
as if the Pioneers from Widener might 
again thwart the Dutchmen's champion- 
ship ambitions. The Pioneers scored the 
first six points of the ball game, and 
their tough defense did an excellent job 
of containing the high-powered Valley 
attack. Widener led by as much as 12 
points in the half, and went into the 
locker room with a 31-24 margin. Even 
through much of the final half the

Wrestling Wrap— Up 

by John Fenimore 

With spring in the air, the fine 
weather sports have gotten under way, 
but let us take one more look back at 
the past winter's wrestling season. Re- 
cording more wins than any other wrest- 
ling squad in LVC's history, the grap- 
plers finished with a team record of 
11-5-2. The dual meet records for each 
wrestler are as follows:

At the Middle Atlantic Conference 
championships, held at Widener College 
last month, LVC had three of its grap- 
plers bring home medals. Al Shortell and 

John Fechisin both lost in the consola- 
tions to finish fourth in their respective 
weight classes. Steve Sanko was the only 
Dutchman to get into the finals, drop- 
ping a close decision, 4-3, to finish with 
a second place medal. 

With the great majority of his team 
returning, Coach Petrofes can look for- 
ward with a smile to next season, as 
well as to this year's golf squad, which 
he also coaches. The golfers lost no one 
through graduation from last year's team, 
and look forward to their third suc- 
cessive winning campaign. In 1971 the 
golf team turned in their first winning 
season with an 8-7 record. Last year, 
after losing the first two matches of the 
season by close scores to Albright and 
Moravian, the squad won its last 14 in a 

Jerry Frey leads this year's team into 
its 17 matches. Last year Frey led the 
squad with an average of 73.6 while 
finishing second in the Middle Atlantic 
Conference Golf Tournament at the 
Hidden Springs Golf and Country Club. 
Chet Mosteller, who finished ninth in 
that tournament, brings a 77.75 average 
with him as LVC's probable number two 
player. Along with Frey, Tim Trone will 
be the co-captains on this year's team. 
Trone's average last season was 84.5. 
Other LVC golfers this spring include 
Bob Johns, Ken Bickel, Paul Zahuta, 
Bob Pembleton, Lin Griffith, and Phil 

LVC home matches are held at the 
Lebanon Country Club in Lebanon. The 
Dutchmen open their 1973 season on 
the road against Dickinson on April 2. 

Dutchmen were unable to cut into the 
Pioneers' advantage and still trailed by 
eight at the midway point of the stanza. 
However, the squad finally managed to 
narrow the gap, tied the score at 45-all, 
and took the lead for the first time 
shortly afterwards at 50-47. But the 
Pioneers refused to fold, coming back 
strong a few minutes later to tally six 
straight points and assume a 59-54 lead 
with only two minutes remaining. Those 
of little faith could be heard proclaiming 
that the Dutchmen's season was over. 
The team itself, however, played near- 
perfect ball both offensively and defen- 
sively the rest of the way. Linde and 
Johnson hit from the floor to bring the 
Valley to within one, and with only 38 
seconds to go Bill Ammons canned two 
free throws to send the team back into 
the lead. Again the Valley defense held 
Widener scoreless, and with just seven 
seconds left Ed Ianarella dropped in a 
foul shot for the final score of the 
evening, as Widener failed in its last- 
ditch efforts to send the contest into 
overtime. Although the Pioneers held a 
47-33 edge in rebounds and took 21 
more shots from the floor, the Dutchmen 
held a decisive 21-9 margin from the 
free throw line. Johnson netted 23 
points, followed by Bill Ammons, who 
managed only two field goals but added 
eight charity throws for a total of 
twelve. Jim Coyle led the Pioneers with 
22 tallies. 

- The following Tuesday, though, the 
string ran out for the Dutchmen as they 
faced a tall and talented Cheyney State 
five in the NCAA College Division Mid- 
East playoffs. The Dutchmen managed 
to stay with the Wolves for the first five 
minutes or so, but then the roof caved in. 
With the score tied at ten, Lebanon 
Valley's attack went completely cold, 
and during a span of almost nine minutes 
the Dutchmen were able to score only 
one basket. Meanwhile, Cheyney State 
tallied 16 markers to open up a 26-12 
lead from which the Dutchmen never 
recovered. Even the ejection of Chey- 
ney's towering center, Bill Allen, for 
taking a poke at Linde late in the half 
failed to make any significant difference 
in the progress of the game. The Wolves 
had a 37-20 lead at intermission, and 
although Valley's offense snapped out 
of the doldrums somewhat in the second 
half, the Dutchmen were never able to 
come closer than 15 points. At the 
buzzer, the score was Cheyney State 74, 
LVC 56, and, as usual, the Southern 
Division representative in the NCAA 
competition bowed out of action early. 
The Dutchmen again were outrebounded, 
but this time they registered only eight 
points from the charity stripe and shot a 
frigid 33.8% from the floor. Kris Linde 
was high scorer for the night with 20 

Nevertheless, the season will long be 
remembered as unquestionably the most 
successful in Lebanon Valley history. 
Not only was the team's final record of 
24 victories as against only three losses 
their best effort ever, but the year also 
saw a large number of individual accom- 
plishments. Leading the way, of course, 
was Don Johnson, whose performances 
will never be forgotten by the many 
individuals who were fortunate enough 
to see him in action. Don finished his 
career with an (unofficial) total of 1976 
points (a record) and 805 field goals 
(another record). His career average of 
20.8 PPG by my calculations also appears 
to be a school high, as are his season 
totals of 653 points and 265 field 
goals, both of which bettered the marks 
he himself established last year. Kris 
Linde, Johnson's much-underrated part- 
ner on the Valley front line, ranks third 
on the all-time school scoring roster with 
1382 points, while Ed Ianarella wound 
up his career with 619 points and over 
550 assists. Moreover, underclassmen 
such as Bill Ammons, Ray Mitchell, 
and Charlie Brown not only contributed 
this year but also show the promise of 
more to come. All in all, it was 
definitely a memorable season. 

Residents A Edge 
PhiloA In Triple 

by Jim Katzaman 

The 1972-73 intramural basketball 
season came to a close on February 27 
when Residents A met Philo A in a 
game which must down in the books as 
one of the greatest intramural games 
played in the history of the program at 
LVC. Certainly, it was the best game 
played, intramural or varsity, on the 
Lynch court in the last several years. 
This contest featured not one, but two 
buzzer shots to send the match into 
triple overtime with the Residents emerg- 
ing as the 61-60 victors, and thus siezing 
the tournament championship. 

The Residents started out hot in the 
first half, threatening to run away with 
everything as they opened a lead that 
at one point stood at nine points. Then 
it was Philo's turn to show their abili- 
ties as they retaliated to narrow the 
Resident's lead to one with a half-time 
score of 20-19. "Derrick" Craig Ander- 
son was the man of the half for the Resi- 
dents as he shot four for seven from the 
floor and converted one of two foul 
shots for nine points. Close behind 
was "Big John" Buckfelder, another 
one of the old men on the team, who 
gathered in two from the field and made 
three of five from the line for seven 
points. On the other side, Scotty 
"Purple" Hazel took first half honors 
by making three from the field and 
four from the line. The rest of Philo 
had rather anemic totals for the half 
as the team average was 27% from the 
floor and 46% from the charity stripe. 
The Residents shot 40% and 50% 

A factor contributing to Philo's low 
totals was the defense of Bill Buckfelder, 
the "Rejector". Skying every time he 
left the ground, he was primarily respon- 
sible for Buck Poley notching only one 
of five attempts from the floor. How- 
ever, he was not all finesse as he was 
detected hammaring the opposition three 
times during the half. 

In the second half, Philo was red hot 
throughout as they hit 67% at the line 
and 55% from the field. Residents, in 
the battle for the see-sawing lead, began 
a slow-down game making each shot 
count, making three out of three fouls 
and shooting 48% on field goals. Yet, 
for all their methodical tactics, the Res- 
idents managed to get themselves con- 
sistently burned by Jim Spiro throughout 
the game as he kept going right to the 
hoop beating the big , men. His layups 
loomed larger as the game progressed. 
Towards the end of regulation time Philo 
had the Residents by a basket with sec- 
onds remaining. Then, as the spectators 
donned their coats, SWISH! Rod Shane 
hit from 25 feet sending the game into 
overtime. The score was 47-47. 

Now the Residents started to freeze 
the ball until icicles were detected falling 
on the floor. Shane missed his next shot 
but Anderson hit to make the team total 
one for two in field goals. But when 
Shane missed or Philo stole the ball 
there^ were barrages of shots taken at 
Philo's basket. Amazingly, none went in! 
Again Spiro stole to score. Till every- 
thing was done in the first overtime 
Philo was one for nine. Neither team 
had taken a foul shot. 

In the second overtime Residents 
took a four point lead only to see Philo 
come right back to tie. In this part of 
the game the big story was missed foul 
shots., At one point, after having already 
taken one in this overtime, Philo called 
for a timeout. After stopping the game 
it was learned that the scorekeeper had 
not informed Philo that it had already 
used its one allotted timeout. This 
called for an automatic technical foul 
against Philo. Residents sent their 
"Derrick" to the line to shoot. It was 

the only foul shot he missed all nigh t i 
Then "The Rejector" hit Boeckel i n th e 
act of shooting. Buckfelder left the ga me 
with five personals as Ed went to th e 
line to shoot two. With only seconds left 
either point would probably win. Again 
the sight was incredible as Ed, one f 
the deadliest shooter around, proceeded 
to bounce both attempts off the front of 
the rim. End of second overtime, the 
score, 55 all. 

Now Boeckel was hot as he scored 
five points which was Philo's total f 0r 
the third overtime. His final point came 
as he was fouled in the act of shooting 
with three seconds left and the score 
tied. Again, if either one fell through 
the hoop, for all practical purposes the 
game would be over. Incredibly, the first 
shot bounced off the front of the rim 
but the second: SWISH! 

Coach Dave White called time out to 
map out a desperation play. Meanwhile 
coach Ray Mitchell was being congrat- 
ulated by Philo members for finally 
icing the game. There would be no 
fourth overtime, no matter what. White 
devised a play calling for Stetler to 
inbound far down court to Shane, who 
would then heave up the last desperation 
shot. With the score 60-59, only three 
seconds left, and having to inbound 
from the opposite end of the court, the 
two teams faced each other. Stetler 
inbounded to Gary McDivitt, who was 
standing open at half court. But, instead 
of shooting, the "Doo-er" passed to 
Anderson at the head of the key. With 
three men on him at 25 feet, "Derrick" 
went under a defender's arm, released 
the ball, the buzzer sounded, a bank off 
the glass, and IN! Shot before the 
buzzer, the basket counted and Ander- 
son was mobbed. It was the greatest 
victory after the greatest game. The sad 
part about the whole thing was that 
somebody had to lose. Neither team had 
anything to be ashamed of, everyone 
had played his best when it counted. 

In an anti-climatic consolation game, 
Kalo beat the Faculty to capture third 
place in the tournament.

his senior recital. 


Arts Festival Coordinator Vicki Han- 
cock today announced that this year's 
featured artist at the Spring Arts Festival 
will be Dmitri Poposhenkov, noted Rus- 
sian potato sculptor. Mr. Poposhenkov 
will be appearing as part of the State De- 
partment's new International Culture 
Exchange Program, the intention of which 
is to bring new and unusual artistic talent 
to the U.S. 

Poposhenkov uses as his only medium 
specially prepared mashed potatoes. His 
work requires a daily expenditure of over 
200 dollars for potatoes, milk, butter 
and paper toweling. The artist uses a se- 
cret blend of ingredients to produce a po- 
tato mixture free of lumps and pliable. 
"Ees ochen eemportant that potatos be 
zhust zo, else the resulting work of art 
will loose zhape or sprout," the artist 
commented to reporters in New York re- 
entry. He is slightly disappointed with 
the quality of American potatoes. "Too 
stringy," Poposhenkov commented. "The 
best potatoes are zhust leetle beet rotten.' 

Poposhenkov, in addition to present- 
m § Lebanon Valley College with a sculp- 
ture made during the Arts Festival, will 
display some of the more recent works 
he has brought with him from his home- 
lar >d. Included in his traveling works 
W 'U be the famous "Lodkus Lodkee II," 
a hfesize, three-dimensional caricature of 
^ late Nikita S. Khruschev made en- 
tlre ly of Ukrainian white potatoes with 
* Hoistener of fresh Turkish goat's milk. 
Ur >ique aroma and the fine patine of 
mold that has covered the sculp- 
since its completion has reportedly 
P eased those in the Supreme Soviet and 
e Polit Bureau who favor Re-Staliniza- 
_° n -It was flown to the U.S. on a special 
pr-proof Tu-114 jet and will be dis- 
j ) ayed sealed in a bullet-proof plexiglass 


Artistically, though, there is no ques- 
tion of the merit and genius of the works 
of Dmitri Poposhenkov. Mr. Richard Is- 
kowitz of the L.V.C. art department has 
himself stated, "the art of Mr. Poposhen- 
kov is the first full budding of the vege- 
table as an art medium and will certainly 
open the door to other possibilities, es- 
pecially carrots and asparagus spears. 
Once the perishability problem is licked, 
Mr. Poposhenkov will no doubt be con- 
sidered one of art's immortals." Mr. Is- 
kowitz has suggested a caramel glaze as a 
possible solution, but Poposhenkov is 
known to be partial to linseed oil or a 
formaldehyde bath as a preservative. 

In addition to his major works, Popo- 

shenkov will prepare in limited quantity 
a series of mixture sculptures in his 
"Korotkee I" series. These consist of 
foot-tall mounds of whipped Idahoes 
molded to represent a dove's wing, moun- 
ted on a lacquered mahogany base and 
wrapped in a super Baggie. Not only are 
works in the Kortkee I series aesthetical- 
ly pleasing, but they can be eaten in 
times of need and are reputed to be quite 
acceptable sauteed in butter and onion 

Upon his return to the U.S.S.S., Pop- 
oshenkov has indicated that he will pur- 
sue the development of the frozen french 
fry as a medium for mobiles and light

The toliet facilities on both levels of 
the Allan W. Mund College Center, pre- 
viously known as simply "men's" and 
"ladie's" rooms, have been named. 

The announcement, made this mor- 
ning by Center director Walter Smith, is 
the latest in a series of announcements 
of rooms on campus being named after 
contributors whose benevolences to Le- 
banon Valley College exceed $10,000. 
Henceforth, the men's facilities will be 
known as the Martin F. James Memorial 
Men's Facilities, while the ladie's toilets 
will be known as the Martha C. Faust 
Memorial Ladies' Lounges. 

Normally, a contribution of $10,000 
entitles the contributor to only one room 
named in his or her honor, but in the 
case of the College Center rest rooms, the 
Board of Trustees, in consultation with 
Mr. Robert Wonderling and Malcom Mey- 
er, director of the Fund for Fulfillment, 
has determined that owing to the size dif- 
ference between a toilet and a regular 
room, an eligible contributor is entitled 
to two toilets instead of only one. 

Martin F. James '17 is best remem- 
bered as a student who saw his duty and 
did it, being the first Lebanon Valley Col- 
lege graduate to enlist for military duty 
in World War I. James was assigned as a 
fighter pilot with Eddie Rickenbacker's 
famous Lafayette Esquadrille, and was 
killed in action on February 21, 1918, 
when his SPAD biplane crashed into a 
barn on takeoff, somewhere in Belgium. 
Ever true to his Alma Mater, James had 

nicknamed his plane the "Flying Dutch- 
man" and was famous for tying blue and 
white streamers to his plane's wings. The 
cause of his fatal crash was determined to 
be a jammed rudder caused when one of 
the streamers became entangled in the 
tail control wires. 

James'es contribution was offered in 
his name by Arthur J. James '56, pater- 
nal grand-nephew of Martin F. James. 
The younger James is currently employed 
as a design engineer by Boeing Aircraft 
Corp., Seattle. 

Martha C. Faust '37 was, of course, a 
well-known personality on the Lebanon 
Valley College campus. A quiet woman 
of matronly appearance, Miss Faust ser- 
ved as Dean of Women at Lebanon Val- 
ley College from 1957 until her sudden 
demise last summer. She held a master's 
degree from Syracuse University. 

Miss Faust was, throughout her ca- 
reer as Dean of Women, deeply con- 
cerned over the moral fiber of Lebanon 
Valley coeds. Her personal convictions 
led her to oppose liberalized women's 
rights and night hours as well as general 
intervisitation period increases. Indeed, it 
is ironic to note that her reaction to pro- 
posed further slackening of women's re- 
gulations consisted of the declaration that 
those changes would come "over her 
dead body." She maintained her strict 
posture on campus morality steadfastly 

in the face of rising unrest among the 
(Continued on Page 3, Col. 5) 


Once again this week, the Lebanon 
Valley Student Senate finds itself in the 
headlines of La Vie. In a major break- 
through, Senate President Walt Frank- 
owski announced that, beginning next 
week, afternoon quiet hours will extend 
from 2:30 P.M. to 4:30 P.M., instead 
of from 2 to 5 as has been traditional. 
Sources close to the Senate indicated 
that this step was taken largely as a 
protest against the administration's 
persistent refusal to consider a more 
modest proposal (submitted in October 
of 1970) which would have set the 
hours from 2:05 until 4:50. Neverthe- 
less, despite the politics of the situation 
most Valley students rejoiced at the 
prospect that this much-needed liberal- 
ization would actually go into effect. 
Their enthusiasm was dampened, how- 
ever, by the subsequent announcement 
that, due to trie f act that an appeal has 
been filed with the Executive Commit- 
tee, the old hours will remain in effect, 
and any violators will be prosecuted. 
Dean Marquette, who filed the appeal, 
stated that he did so in an effort to 
"give the student government structure 
a fair chance to deal with matters such 
as this." He went on to add his opinion 
that the Senate's unprecedented action 
in unilaterally attempting such a major 
policy change was "probably illegal" 
but that "quiet hours policy, per se, is 
not the question here." 

The recent consturction of a fif- 
teen-foot-high chain -link fence around 
the LVC Quad has aroused a storm of 
controversy culmination in a formal 
letter of protest which has been sent 
by Student Council to President Fred- 
erick P. Sample. Sample expressed 
surprise at the outcry, declaring that he 
had "no idea" that the students might 
react so violently. He explained that 
the fence was built to protect the 
"vegetative covering" of the Quad, 
thereby preserving its "natural and un- 
spoiled" qualities, and was in his opin- 
ion both "functionally and aesthet- 
ically pleasing." Most of the students, 
however, seemed to disagree with his 
view that the "inner harmony" of the 
fence and its "artistic use of line and 
form" make it a "priceless addition to 
our campus." In response to student 
criticisms, Sample reiterated his desire 
for a "meaningful dialogue" on the 
subject and asked the students for 
"sincere and realistic" suggestions for 
relocating the fence, while adding that 
he felt the fence would probably be 
"too conspicuous" if situated else- 
where. The President also ventured 
the statement that the appearance of 
the fence (at least at night) should 
be improved in September, when the 
plans for outlining the Miller Chapel 
with red, green, and violet neon lights 
will finally be realized. 

In the world of sports, Sample 
dropped a bombshell by announcing 
that the contract of football, basket- 
ball, and baseball coach Lou Sorrentino 
would not be renewed for next year. 
According to our reports, the President 
felt that Sorrentino's decision to hold 
an early baseball practice on Religious 
Emphasis Day was out of keeping with 
the spirit and objectives of the college. 
This rumor was vehemently denied by 
both Sample and newly-hired basket- 
ball coach Carl ("Mauler") Mclntyre, 
formerly of Shelton College. However,

Smitler Next 
Speaker for 

This week's speaker in the contin- 
uing Chaper-Convocation series will be 
Mr. Waldorf Smitler of Lebanon, Sec- 
ond High-Chancellor of the Lebanon 
County Chapter of the American 
Nazi Party. The topic of his presen- 
tation will be, "Totalitarianism and 
Its Place in the Small, Church-Related 
Liberal Arts College." 

Smitler is a graduate of Lebanon 
Valley College, class of '61. Upon 
graduation from college he became a 
speech writer for late American Nazi 
head George Lincoln Rockwell, of 
whom Smitler has said, "He knew his 
place in society, and he made very 
sure everyone else knew his place in 
society as well!" Smitler personally 
authored the famous "Fences for 
Freedom" speech delivered by Rock- 
well on May 16, 1962, on the campus of 
Bob Jones University of South Carolina. 
In this speech, Rockwell unveiled his 
plan to build a six-foot high split rail 
fence, reinforced with electrified barbed 
wire, along the borders of the conti- 
nental United States, Hawaii, Alaska, 
tropical possessions, military bases, and 
Ellis Island, in order to prevent further 
infiltration by "foreigners, reds, Africans 
with British accents, and the rest of the 
world's flotsam." The speech, a landmark 
in American diatribe, is now considered 
required reading for younger party in- 

In lieu of a strong American Nazi 
candidate in the recent Presidential elec- 
tion, Smitler worked diligently for the 
Committee to Re-Elect the President, 
or C.RE.E.P. as it was known to the 
Democratic National Committee. "Nixon 
possesses a firm concept of the extent 
and uses of Presidential power essential 
in this time of simpering, weakling 
Liberalism," boasts Smitler. 

Following his presentation in Chapel, 
Smitler will sell personally autographed 
copies of his new book, Profiles in 
Facism (biographical sketches of Musso- 
lini, Himmler, Goebbels, Doenitz, and 
others) at the reception desk of Mund 
College Center for $3.95 a copy. 

Next Psych 


The next film in the Cinematic Con- 
ceptions of Man series will be Walt 
Disney's The Horse in the Grey Flannel 
Suit, starring Dean Jones. 

The film deals with the establishment 
of parameters of good taste and intellec- 
tual sensitivity in the cinema as related 
to wonder animals.

On Thursday night, March 29, 1973, those who had compiled a 
mounting deficit on God's balance sheet, paid dearly for their sins as a 
local server of alcoholic beverage was busted by the Pennsylvania Liquor 
Control Board. 

For quite some time now this establishment, this den of sin, has 
been contributing to the progressing delinquincy of minors here at Le- 
banon Valley College. Staying open at all hours of the night to promote 
its trade, the bar apparently possessed no moral decency as it did bus- 
iness even after all the good merchants of the community had added 
up their incomes for the day and gone to rest. The thought of anything 
being open later than 11 P.M. on a weekend in downtown Annville 
strikes a note of fear in many of those heading the community estab- 
lishment. Now, however, the bar and its non-responsible patrons have 

Those arrested in the raid, probably the same ones who do not at- 
tend chapel convocation, are learning the hard way that there must be 
more to life than just drinking. They must also realize by now that the 
Devil extracts a stiff fee for following in his footsteps. Hopefully, God 
can forgive their past actions and bring them back as loyal members in- 
to his flock from which they so long ago departed. 

The action taken by the Liquor Control Board is the most positive 
step that could have been taken. We can only pray that this will speed 
the effort to get the drunks off the streets of Annville and put them 
back on the Lebanon Valley campus where they belong. 


President Richard Nixon addressed the nation last Thursday night. 
During the speech he thanked loyal Americans for their support during 
a "difficult time" then he proceeded to place a freeze on meat prices. 

We can only applaud the actions taken by the President as a sign of 
his great insight concerning national economics. Through him may we 
experience a new birth of prosperity on our ever-brightening horizon. 

There are those whimpering, die-hard liberals who have no perception 
of the President's overall game-plan. They contend that our President is 
inconsistent by changing his policies to suit the mood of the nation. 
This is not true at all. As far back as four years ago Richard Nixon real- 
ized that meat prices would be on the rise and decided to do something 
about it. Knowing the basic economic law of supply and demand, he 
knew that if more people were available to produce and supply meat to 
the public, the prices would level-off. He was in a quandry as to where he 
would find a sizable number of meat producers and processors to take 
over the task. Then he realized that there were over 500,000 men in 
Vietnam who were not at that moment making a direct contribution to 
the U.S. economy. Since they already had some practical experience in 
the field, they could fit perfectly into the American economic system. 
Thus he planned to have them return to the United States at a gradual 
pace over a four-year period so that a massive influx would not noticably 
affect price stability. 

His intentions were good but flaws developed from two misplaced 
conceptions: The men did not return fast enough and they turned out 
to be mostly meat consumers rather than providers. Nevertheless, this 
should not hinder our optimistic view of President Nixon as a man of 
courage and vision trying hard to do his best. Few other men can say the 
same. We must all remember how much poorer America as a nation 
would be without him in our midst to guide us. 

Editor of 

La Vie Dies 


James Katzaman, editor of La Vie, 
was found dead yesterday in his resi- 
dence in West Funkhouser Hall. An 
autopsy will be performed today to 
determine the exact cause of his passing; 
preliminary word from the hospital indi- 
cates that death was attributed to suffo- 
cation. To bear out this assumption, an 
announcement was made stating that 
fragments of pigskin were found in the 
victim's throat which would seem to 
indicate that the cause of death was a 
football lodged in the throat. An inves- 
tigation was underway by the police 
agencies assuming that death was brought 
on by a foul play. 

Mr. Katzaman had a brief yet varied 
career on the staff of La Vie, a career 
which saw his rise from cub reporter to 
cub editor in the short time of two 

years. Though his rise was rapid, it was 
not without controversy as he covered 
stories ranging from Board of Trustees 
meetings to the address of the Nation- 
alist Chinese Ambassador to the U.N. 
on the same night the Nationalists were 
displaced by the Communists. 

As editor his reporting was limited to 
some extent, yet he still managed to get 
himself into hot water by expressing his 
views on such varied subjects as the 
national elections and the LVC football 
team. By his death there remained few 
people on the Lebanon Valley campus, 
or for that matter, the world, that he 
had not managed to offend in some 
shape or form. 

As news of his passing spread across 
the campus, the reactions were quick 
and sorrowful, "Who?", "He was a 
what?", "Are we still having fish for 
supper?". A long time associate, Jerry 
Petrofes, remarked that the reason Mr. 
Katzaman died so quickly was due to the 
fact that he was not as lucky in beating 
his attackers this time as he had been 
in his previous encounters. "His luck 
probably ran out."

10 For Extortion) 

X« by Ben Neideigh 

Joni Mitchell, with spoken introduction 
by Joseph Alioto. Neil Young slipped his 
again and wrote a song about it entitled 
"Up and Down My Spine." It's the best 
thing on the whole set, which is an in- 
dictment. Includes posters, autographed 
pictures, photostated royalty figures, 
band-aids, and guitar picks. P.S. Crosby 
did kiss Nash. Really. 

Alice Cooper, The One-Eyed Trouser 
Worm and Other Romances (Warner 
Bros. MS 6996): The cover shows Alice 
relieving himself into a fountain stocked 
with white swans while dressed as the 
Statue of Liberty. The dust jacket fea- 
tures a photo of the Cooper group shoot- 
ing the collective moon out of the win- 
dows of a Rolls-Royce limo in vain at- 
tempt to gross out a covey of groupies 
standing by the curb. It is pure conjec- 
ture as to whether or not they succeded. 
The album is molded in clear plastic 
spattered with red. Highly representation- 
al. Musically the album is the equivalent 
to your ears of what salmonella is to your 
digestive tract. Note that pre-production 
promo copies featured a small plastic 
pouch of Preparation H taped to the in- 
side cover, with the now famous "A.C." 
monogram on the pouch below the logo. 
An applicator was not included, however. 
The public will just have to "let it 
bleed," I guess. 

Mom's Apple Pie, Chocolate Speed- 
way Boogie (Brown Bag BB0273); Terry 
Knight's newest protegees cover all of the 
bases. Not only do they sport horns on 
their sieves, a la Chicago, etc. but 
they're also outdoing A. Cooper, the late 
unlamented Blind Faith, and the Mothers 
of Invention in the race for the raciest 
album cover. Their first album cover fea- 
tured a not-so-sublte pie in the hands of 
someone's idea of Mama Oedipus, circa 
Dayton, 1903. This one features sug- 
gestively-shaped racing cars disappearing 
into a singularly sphincter-shaped tun- 
nel. The album's name is taken from its 
first cut, an apocryphal Jagger-Richard 
composition lifted from the highly-tout- 
ed, unreleased, and probably non-exis- 
tant suppressed Rolling Stones album 
Rim Shot (previewed in a recent Na- 
tional Lampoon.) This cut deals with 
variant erotica and its place in the extra- 
marital relationship, It sets the tone and 
the atmosphere for the rest of the album. 
A must for parties when the guests get 
tired of Doug Clark and His Hot Nuts. 

The Archies, The Archies Sing Lou 
Reeds Greatest Hits (Kirschner KAS 
94682): The Archies don't even have a 
girl drummer to compare with the likes 
of Maureen ("Moe") Tucker, but it does- 
n't matter. The high harmonies on "Her- 
oin" make the album worth the $1.98 it 
costs at supermarkets everywhere. In 
some areas it comes free with a case of 
Dr. Pepper or Krim Ginger Ale. 

That's all and happy listening. You 

Following are brief reviews of records 
of pop/rock music guaranteed to be the 
talk of college campuses from coast to 
coast this spring. Remember, you saw it 
here first. 

- The Moody Blues, The Moody Blues 
Present Twelve Great Movie Themes 
(Threshold THS 13): At last the Moody 
Blues present the pop/rock following 
with an album that renders their sensi- 
bilities most obvious and clear. Own up, 
the Moodies have been heading in this di- 
rection ever since they changed guitar- 
ists, and that was in 1966. Some inter- 
esting material, if for no other reason 
than it seems perfectly normal for the 
Moodies to warble something like "Sui- 
cide Is Painless" (the theme from 
M*A*S*H); after all, they've already 
done "Timothy Leary's Dead" and the 
shift to the first person isn't all that dif- 
ficult. God help them if their mellotron 
ever breaks down. God forbid they should 
ever play "Exodus" at the Spectrum, re 
gardless of whether it is their new single 
or not (rumor has it...). It's got no beat, 
you can't dance to it, I rate it a 25. 

The Ronettes, The return of the Ron- 
ettes (Apple SWBO 1321): John Lennon 
expressed recently in Rolling Stone to 
sign some of the original rock and roll 
acts to his Allen Klein-overseen slice to 
the Apple pie, and this is the first tan- 
gible result. It's produced, obviously e- 
nough,by Phil Spector (Mr. Ronnie Spec- 
tor, as it were), with help from John and 
Yoko, and on a whole the results aren't 
bad. The reprises of "Da Doo Ron Ron," 
"Chapel of Love," "Leader of the Pack," 
and "River Deep, Mountain High" are 
kinda cool, in fact. I can't picture three 
chicks in silver lame tube dresses singing 
"Woman is the Nigger of the World," 
though. Maybe they think "Surfer Girl" 
(their tribute to Brian Wilson) makes up 
for it. 

Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young, Kiss 
and Make Up (Atlantic SD 55532, a tri- 
ple set): Elliot Roberts got them to stop 
hating themselves and each other long 
enough to record six sides of multi- 
voiced harmony, acoustic guitars, and pol- 
itics. The supporting cast includes Jerry 
Garcia, Mickey Hart, Jorma Kaukonen, 
Papa John Creach, John Sebastian, John- 
ny Barbata, Mark Volman, Howard Kay- 
Ian, Keith Richard, Barry Goldberg,and

Writes Book 


Mr. George Landis, Food Service 
director at Lebanon Valley College, has 
released in paperback form his mem. 
oirs as Head Cook of the Allied i n v a . 
sion forces during World War II, en- 
titled Fighting Hash-Slingers. 

In Fighting Hash-Slingers, Landis 

recounts some memorable and touchin 

moments in the field, in service tn , 

u an 

army literally crawling on its collective 
stomach. One of the more interesting 
passages recounts Landis' months of 
service as chief cook for Gen. George 
S. Patton. "He always demanded brown 
sugar with his fried bananas each morn- 
ing, and there was hell to pay if the 
sugar wasn't delivered exactly level with 
the brim of the sugar bowl," Landis 
recalls. "He also had a queer habit of 
personally attending the butcherings of 
every side of beef he and his staff were 
to eat. He seemed to enjoy the primi- 
tive life-death struggle of the slaughter 
house," Landis notes. "Occasionally he 
would personally take a few swings at 
a steer with the special weighted mallet 
we used. He didn't have too good an 
aim, though." 

Another section of the book, en- 
titled "Of S now, Steaks, and Germans'" 
recounts Landis' experience at the Battle 
of the Bulge. "We were surrounded by 
Krauts, trapped in a small, snow-filled 
grotto," Landis writes. "Just us cooks 
and the officers in the Commissioned 
Officers Mess Tent. It was cold, so 
Cold that the Grade B chuck steaks we 
were to serve that evening wouldn't 
thaw. We were helpless." Then Landis 
goes on to disclose the exciting solution 
to their problem. "The only thing we 
could find that would light up was a 
rusty blow-torch strapped to a panel on 
the back of the company Jeep. So we 
skewered the steaks on sharp sticks, 
floured and salted them, and torched 
them over a medium flame until the 
outsides were coated with a uniform 
layer of soot. Then we just wiped the 
soot off and Voila! Chuck Steak a la 
Kerosene." Landis notes that the 
recipe worked so well that he occasion- 
ally revives it and serves the results to 
his ravenous charges at L.V.C. "They 
seem to like it. Hardly anyone who gets 
sick complains." 

Landis and his division, the 145th 
Battalion Culinary Warfare group, trained 
at Fort Dix, N.J. They saw duty i» 
North Africa, Sicily, Italy, England. 
Liberated France, and finally the 
American Sector of Berlin itself- A 
few times *we ate our midnight snacks 
in the Fuhrerbunker with all the ligh ts 
turned out, only candles. The atmosphere 
was tremendous," Landis recalls. Dur' n r

In responce to the recent Supreme 
Court ruling on clinical abortion, Nurse 
Yeiser has announced the initiation of 
abortion service in the Lebanon Valley 
College Infirmary. 

As a result of the initiation of this 
service, the Infirmary has acquired, with 
funds allocated by the Board of Trustees, 
a slightly -used 1967 Hoover Constellation 
vacuum cleaner. Once suitably modified, 
the Hoover will be used for simple, 
relatively painless vacuum aspiration 

When asked to comment, Nurse 
Yeiser said, "Well, I know it doesn't 
look like much, but we just had the 
motor overhauled and all of the attach- 
ments have been boiled in my pressure 
cooker to make sure they're 100% 
sterile. The dealer even gave us extra 
cleaner bags!" 

In other Infirmary news, Nurse Yeiser 
announced the receipt of four crates, 
100 count per crate, of Parke-Davis No. 
71-Y Institutional Strength Throat Spray. 
Parke-Davis No. 71-Y is a strengthened 
version of the familiar Parke-Pavis No. 
71-X, well-known institutional-issue 
throat preparation that has been used in 
the LVC Infirmary for five years. In its 
day, 71-X proved quite effective against 
a veritable galaxy of diseases, but accord- 
ing to Nurse Yeiser, 71-Y will be even 
more versatile. 

"We've been using 71-Y for treatment 
of London flu and third-degree burns 
for the past two weeks with some 
success," Nurse Yeiser commented. 
"And, it says here on the bottle that 
71-Y is also effective against boils, radia- 
tion sickness, syphilis, feminine cramps, 
torn ligaments, halitosis, cardiac arrest, 
hemorrhoidal tissue, Rocky Mountain 
fever, diarrhea, psoriasis, morning mouth, 
acid flashes, acne, chicken pox, and the 
rot " she added. 


Dean of Students George Marquette 
announced last week that, effective im- 
mediately, due to his concern over the 
current water pollution crisis and the a- 
vailability of bio-degradable detergents, 
his familiar nickname "Rinso" will be 
dropped in favor of "Axion."

She would no doubt have been appalled 
by the recent Supreme Court decision on 
abortion had she lived to see it. 

Miss Faust's contribution was offered 
in her name by the Lebanon County 
Chapter of the National Legion for De- 
cency. The presentation of her contribu- 
tion was made by Miss Priscilla Goodbo- 
dy, national chairwoman and founder of 
the Legion. Miss Goodbody is best 
known as the brunt of many jokes by 
Johnny Carson made during her service 
as censor for the National Broadcasting 
Company. She stated while presenting 
the contribution to Mr. Meyer that with 
the passing of Miss Faust, "another 
great Victorian has bit the dust." 

Economy at 
the Valley 

As a result of recent administration 
moves toward economization of the 
college functions, the Dean of the College 
has announced that this Year's commence- 
ment speaker will be Malcolm Meyer, 
head of the Lebanon Valley College 
Fund for Fulfillment. 

Meyer will talk on the subject, "Giv- 
ing and The New Alumnus," an exposi- 
tion explaining the feasibility of large 
contributions on a minimal income. 

Astor Sold 

Weinstock Exposes Purchase 

The Astor Cinema, long a familiar An- 
ville landmark and haven for campus 
movie buffs, has been sold. 

In an announcement issued March 30, 
Mr. Louis Weinstock of Columbia re- 
leased information concerning his recent 
purchase of the Astor from Sameric 
Theatre Enterprizes, Inc., owners of the 
Astor franchise. Weinstock reportedly 
paid $45,000 for the aging structure, a 
figure that will doubtless increase a bit 
more when the prices for internal and ex- 
ternal renovation are determined. 

Weinstock long an entrepreneur of 
sexploitation films in Lancaster County 
and defendant in a 1972 obscenity trial 
(precipitated by his showing of Mono at 
the Columbia Drive-in Theatre, along 
Route 30 outside Columbia), predictably 
disclosed that, following the run of 
M*A*S*H, currently being screened in 
re-release, the Astor will present "only 
the finest in adult cinema." The first 
films slated for the Weinstock-owned 
Astor are The Secret Sex Lives of Romeo 
and Juliet and, as a second feature, The 
Pumpin ' Puppy. All tickets will be sold 
at a price of $5.00. 

Weinstock also announced his inten- 
tion to eventually change the name of the 
theatre to The Ass tor Adult Cinema. 


The winning dance marathon couple 
of Mike Kovonuk and Chip Cuipylo was 
disqualified yesterday and made to for- 
feit the $75 prize money when it was 
discovered that Kovonuk was in actuality 
an electronic, battery-powered robot. 
The real Mike Kovonuk was reported to 
have mysteriously disappeared shortly 
after the close of Basketball season. 

The clever ruse was discovered when 
the Kovonuk robot attempted to shower 
in his dormitory. Obviously, the plastic 
skin had sprung a leak, for as soon as the 
water began spraying the robot short- 
circuited and went up in a ball of sparks 
and fumes.

Lam Poon Collegienne, Thursday, April 5 5 ^ 


Donny Johnson, statistically the 
greatest offensive basketball player in 
the history of Lebanon Valley College, 
was drafted Friday in the first round by 
the Biloxi Bushwackers of the recently 
organized World Basketball League. He is 
reportedly being offered a contract in 
excess of $600,000.00 over a three-year 
period, plus part ownership in the 
Bushwackers Franchise and a series of 
meatless quick lunch stands named after 
him in return for his services. 

When asked to comment, Johnson 
noted, "I've never been to Biloxi, but I 
hear it's quite a place. Not much night 
life, though." The Bushwackers scout, 
"Ace" Wassermann, stated that the team 
was interested in Donny as "a player 
who can do it all-and may have to if 
we can't sign any of our other draft 
choices." As yet, the Bushwackers have 
only one actual team member signed, 
namely former 76'ers coach Ray Rubin, 
who applied for the job in person at 
Biloxi last Tuesday. 

The W.B.L. plans to attract crowds 
away from the N.B.A. and A.B.A. by 
means of startling innovations. The 
league plans to allow zone defenses, and 
thus eliminate the time-to-shoot clock. 
In addition, the official W.B.L. basketball 
is colored Day-glo green and is visible 
for a distance of 1 2 miles on level ground 
on a moonless night. Also, in addition to 
a 3-point goal adapted from A.B.A. 
rules, the W.B.L. will allow six points 
for any goal scored from half- or back- 
court. League president Gen. Curtis 
LeMay hopes this rule will foster the 
development of a new-style basketball

Wassermann indicated that Johnson

available at game time. 

New Football 

In keeping with current efforts to 
provide the Lebanon Valley College 
Flying Dutchman football team with 
more suitable competition, Athletic 
Director Gerald Petrofes announced last 
week that the featured 1973 Homecom- 
ing football contest will pit the Dutch- 
men against the Little Dutchmen of 
Annville-Cleona High School. 

When asked to comment on the 
recently-scheduled contest, Annville- 
Cleona coach Dennis Tulli's reply was 
simply, "I think it's great. It will give 
my boys a fine opportunity to sharpen 
up for the following week's contest with 
ELCO. ELCO's always tough, you 
know." Last fall, Tulli's Little Dutchmen 
won the Section II Championship of the 
Lancaster-Lebanon Counties Scholastic 
Athletic Conference, while the Flying 
Dutchmen under the tutelage of head 
coach Lou Sorrentino, finished 4-5 in 
the MAC Southern Division. 

With the proposed addition of Lan- 
caster's McCaskey High School, a trans- 
fer from the tough Central Penn League, 
to the Lanco-Lebco's Section I, it has 
been suggested by some local sports 
officials, notably P.I.A.A. District 3 
director Jerry Brooks, that it would be 
appropriate to admit LVC to the Lanco- 
Lebco's Section II to balance McCaskey's 
entrance. Brooks noted, "It would create 
a great cross-town rivalry up there in 
Annville, wouldn't it?" At the moment, 
however, any rumors that the Flying 
Dutchmen will withdraw from the MAC 
in favor of the Lanco-Lebco Conference 
should be considered just that-rumors. 
Mr. Petrofes has stated that the schedu- 
ling of Annville-Cleona for the home- 
coming contest is merely "an experiment 
designed to enhance local interest." 

In conjunction with the announce- 
ment of the scheduling by Petrofes, 
LVC President Frederick P. Sample 
announced that the Annville-Cleona 
game, rather than the Albright game, 
would henceforth be known as "The 
Pretzel Bowl Game," victory in which 
cancels the following Monday's classes. 

Chess to 
be Varsity 

President Frederick P. Sample has an- 
nounced that, beginning in the fall of 
this year, chess will become a varsity 
sport at Lebanon Valley College. In a 
concerted attempt to "enliven the intel- 
lectual atmosphere" of the school and to 
improve on this past year's 73rd place 
finish in the Pan-American Intercolle- 
giate Team Championship, Sample reveal- 
ed that world champion Bobby Fischer 
has been signed to direct the program. 
In his first press conference, Coach Fis- 
cher (who, due to his unselfish devotion 
to the high ideals of the game, is serving 
without pay) outlined his plans for an 
extensive recruiting effort covering such 
hotbeds of chess activity as the Soviet 
Union, Hungary, Denmark, and the Falk- 
land Island. Plans have been made to 
equip Lynch Memorial Gymnasium with 
five oversized (8' X 8') chess boards and 
a like number of large wall clocks so that 
spectators can follow the progress of the 
matches. The team's $10,000 budget will 
also provide for such essentials as uni- 
forms and training facilities. Next year's 
schedule will include not only formidable 
foes such as UCLA, MIT, and Texas, but 
also rematches with several former op- 
ponents, including Nebraska, Penn, Ship- 
pensburg State, and Loop College. In ad- 
dition, the squad will spend their Winter 
Vacation in Europe, where they will com- 
pete in the Moscow Intercollegiate Cham- 
pionship, the Icelandic Interzonal (Reyk- 
javik), and the First Annual Iron Curtain 
Invitational in Belgrade. Fischer empha- 
sized, however, that chess is "only a 
game," saying that "we will be chiefly 
concerned with promoting sportsmanship 
and having some good clean fun," since 
the primary purpose of intercollegiate 
sports is not to win but rather to "build

somewhere in beautiful downtown Annville. The question that all are asking 
themselves is can the All-Stars beat this or other teams? 

All-Stars to Perform

greatness of the '72-'73 varsity team. It 
was either that or maybe even the midgets 
complained about the condition of the 
gym floor. 

Whatever the reason may have been,

Mclntyre did cite a passage from Rev- 
elations which "conclusively proves" 
that the Flying Dutchmen are destined 

to win the NCAA small-college champ- 
ionship in 1974. 

One final highlight on the campus 
scene was last Thursday's announce- 
ments that the Allan W. Mund College 
Center had been awarded the first 
annual Arnold S. Musselbaum Memor- 
ial Planning and Construction Award, 
which is given yearly to the one build- 
ing in the United States which best 
exemplifies the principles of intelligent 
design and quality craftmanship. Sev- 
eral days ago this reporter had the 
unusual privilege of speaking to Arnold 
S. Musselbaum, Jr., who presented the 
award. Among the features most 
praised by Musselbaum were the "ex- 
ceptionally convenient location of mul- 
tiple exits to facilitate the effecti 
flow of traffic" and the "excellence of 
workmanship" displayed in the con- 
struction of interior doors and ceilings. 
He was most impressed, however, by 
what he termed the "highly original 
and inspired" location of the rest room 
for the handicapped on the lower floor 
of the structure. 

(the tallest of the little teams on the 
court at an average height of 4 '7") and 
tripping penalties drawn by Handy Mart 
(4'2"). This team is so small that the 
All-Stars will not be able to see them. The 
Mart team's height average is 1*5" below 
the normal field of vision. 

The five-on-five matchups certainly 
will not be even contests. Yet, the All- 
Stars could win at least one game, that 
being when the Half Pints come stagger- 
ing onto the court. But even under 
those conditions the teams will be rate 
even. The hope of the sports department 
is that the little guys do not blow the 
All-Stars off the court so badly so as 
not to reflect a derogatory image of c° 
legiate athletics.

Four Lebanon Valley College faculty 
members have been selected to appear 
in the 1973 edition of Outstanding 
Educators of America. 

Nominated earlier this year, they were 
chosen for the awards publication on the 
basis of their professional and civic 

They include Dr. George D. Curfman, 
associate professor of music education; 
Mrs. June E. Herr, associate professor of 
elementary education; Mrs. Agnes B. 
O.'Donnell, assistant professor of English; 
and Dr. James N. Spencer, assistant 
professor of chemistry. , 

Dr. Curfman joined the faculty in 
1961. He is a native of Williamsport, 
Maryland, and earned the M.M. degree 
from the University of Michigan and 
D.Ed, degree from the Pennsylvania State 

A native of Derry Township, Dau- 
phin County, Mrs. Herr has been a mem- 
ber of the faculty since 1959. She holds 
the B.S. degree from Lebanon Valley 
College and the M.Ed, degree from the 
Pennyslvania State University. 

A native of Philadelphia, Mrs. O'Don- 
nell has been a member of the faculty 
since 1961. She received the A.B. degree 
from Immaculata College, the M.Ed, 
degree from Temple University, and the 
M.A. from the University of Pennsylvania. 

Dr. Spencer is a native of Meadow 
Bridge, West Virginia, and holds the B.S. 
degree from Marshall University and the 
Ph.D. degree from Iowa State University. 
He joined the faculty in 1967. 

These professors are being honored as 
Outstanding Educators for their "excep- 
tional service, achievements, and leader- 
ship in the field of education." David 
Mathews, President of the University of 
Alabama, who writes in the introductory 
message for the 1972 edition of Out- 
standing Educators in America. " There 
is indeed a time and a season for all 

things, and this time, this decade, for 
educators is going to be a decade for 
change. Institutions need ideological 
leadership . . . rather than more elaborate 
defenses of present operations or more 
romantic assessments of past accomplish- 
ments. Moreover, our leadership must 
not only be humanistic, but humane 
and human." 

Honored As 
Coach of The 

The Mercer County Community Col- 
lege Alumni Association will honor 
MCCC's National Junior College Basket- 
ball Coach of the Year, Howie Landa, 
with a testimonial dinner at 5:30 P.M. 
Sunday, June 3, at the Princeton Coun- 
try Club on Route 1. 

The title of National Coach of the 
Year is not a new one for Landa, coor- 
dinator of athletics and head basketball 
coach at MCCC since 1963. He first re- 
ceived the title in 1968 when the MCCC 
Vikings were the number two team in 
the nation. This Year, the Vikings are 
also the National Junior College Champ- 

In 15 years of coaching, Landa has 
never had a losing season. His teams 
have won three regional titles, and fin- 
ished six, eleven, two and one in the 
National Tournament in Hutchinson, 

Mr. Landa is a 1955 graduate of 
Lebanon Valley College, and was a mem- 
ber of the championship team of 1952- 
1953. It was his record of points scored 
that Donny Johnson recently surpassed. 

The nationally-known Lebanon Valley 
College Concert Choir and Chamber 
Orchestra will embark upon a three-week 
long concert tour of eastern European 
cities on May 29, thus becoming one of 
only a few American college choirs to 
perform behind the Iron Curtain since 
World War II. 

Under the direction of Pierce A. 
Getz, the 6 5 -member organization will 
perform in the capitals of Hungary, 
Poland, Czechoslovakia; in East and West 
Berlin; as well as in Leipzig, East Germany; 
Vienna, Austria; and Salzburg, Austria. 

Arrangements for the tour are being 
made by the state departments of the 
countries to be visited in conjunction 
with College City Travel, Inc., Northfield, 

In announcing the trip LVC President 
Frederick P. Sample noted that, "This 
fine organization has represented Leba- 
non Valley College with distinction 
throughout this country on many occa- 
sions, and I am proud that they now 
have the opportunity to represent the' 
College abroad. I am also gratified by 
the willingness of the students involved 
to assume a major portion of the trip's 
expense themselves." 

In view of the European trip, the 
choir's annual spring tour was limited 
to a series of performances in the eastern 
and central Pennsylvania area during the 
early part of March. Proceeds from those 
performances will be used to help fi- 
nance the European trip. 

The Lebanon Valley College Concert 
Choir has won wide acclaim for its 
performances from laymen, professional 
musicians, and music educators alike. 

Its most recent appearances previous 
to the March tour have included a Town 
Hall concert in New York in 1971, the 
opening ceremony of the 1971 Pageant 
of Peace tree-lighting ceremony in Wash- 
ington, D.C., and the 1972 General 
Conference of the United Methodist 
Church in Atlanta. The Washington cere- 
mony was presided over by Vice Presi- 
dent Spiro Agnew. 

The group has appeared approximate- 
ly 35 times in nationwide broadcasts on 
NBC for the National Radio Pulpit 
Series, Voices of Easter Series, Voices of 
Christmas Series, and the Great Choirs of 
America Series. In addition it has re- 
ceived ovations for its performances 
before the Music Educator's National 
Conference and the Pennsylvania Music 
Educators Association. 

A number of works by noted com- 
posers are now published and inscribed 
to the choir which performed them in 

The conductor of the choir. Dr. 
Pierce A. Getz, has been a member of 
the LVC faculty since 1959. He holds 
the rank of professor of organ. Dr. Getz 
received the Bachelor of Science degree 
in music education from Lebanon Val- 
ley College, the Master of Sacred Music 
degree from United Theological Seminary 
in New York City, and the Doctor of 
Musical Arts degree from the Eastman 
School of Music. 

His work under such distinguished 
musicians as Peter Wilhousky, Olaf 
Christiansen, and Robert Shaw has helped 
to bring the Lebanon Valley College 
Concert Choir to its current place of 
musical prominence. 

Since 1935 the LVC Concert Choir 
has conducted an annual tour of states 
on the east coast and midwa 
on the east coast and midwest. In recent 
years it has become one of the few 

American collegiate choral organizations 
to travel with chamber orchestra. The 
eastern European trip will be the group's 
first concert tour of foreign nations. 

The May-June repertoire will be sac- 
red in nature and will include a capella 
works by Palestrina, Schutz and Vittoria, 
and works with chamber orchestra ac- 
companiment by Mozart and Bach. The 
choir also will perform works by Amer- 
ican composers Walter Schuman, Charles 
Ives, and Daniel Pinkham, as well as 
southern folk hymns and spirituals. 



The National Gallery of Art in Wash- 
ington, D.C. has awarded Lebanon Val- 
ley College the renowned color film 
series "Civilisation ", written and narrated 
by art historian Kenneth Clark. The pub- 
lic is invited to attend the 13 films. 

In the series, Clark traces, from an a- 
vowedly personal point of view, the 
story of Western Civilization through 
the visual arts, music, literature, and 
political history, from the Fall of the 
Roman Empire through the 20th century. 
The films were originally produced for 
the British Broadcasting Corporation, 
which sent Lord Clark, two producers, 
and a three-man camera crew on a two- 
year mission through eleven countries 
to film the series. In Lord Clark's words, 
the aim was "to define civilization in 
terms of creative power and the en- 
largement of human faculties." 

The distribution for the "Civilisation" 
series has been made possible by match- 
ing grants totaling $181,056 from the 
National Endowment for the Humanities 
and the Xerox Corporation. Normal rent- 
al fee for this series would be $2,000 to 
$3,000 and purchase price would be 
$7,000 a set. 

The first in the series, "The Frozen 
World", was shown on March 29, and 
the second was shown on April 5 ("The 
Great Thaw"). Upcoming films include 
"Romance and Reality", April 12, 7:00 
P.M. in room 101 of Miller Chapel; "Man 
the Measure of All Things", April 17 at 
7:00 P.M. in room 101 of Miller Chapel; 
and "The Hero As Artist", April 26, 
7:00 P.M. in room 101 of Miller Chapel. 
The remaining eight films in the series 
will be shown in the fall. 

The public is invited to attend all of 
the films. There is no charge for admis-

With the monsoon season now offi-

golf squads have undertaken their annual 
routine of plotting to escape the clutch-

LA VIE COLLEGIENNE is published bi-weekly by the students of Lebanon 
Valley College except during examination periods and vacations. LA VIE 
is printed by Boyer Press, Lebanon, Pa. Newspaper offices are located in 
the lower level of the Allan W. Mund College Center, telephone 717-867- 
3561, ext. 316. Subscriptions by mail are available for $2.50 per semester. 
The opinions expressed in La Vie are those of the editors and do not 
represent the official opinion of the College. 


Several of those students among us who make a habit of complain- 
ing about the lack of weekend activities at the Valley have no room, 
perhaps in some cases no right, to protest. These individuals, few in 
number but causing many problems have, apparently taken it upon 
themselves to see that all forms of weekend entertainment are demo- 
lished before those activities can even begin. 

For instance, note this impressive track record Which these people 
have managed to compile in the time-span of only one week. Through 
them the Dance Marathon was thrown into a controversy resulting in 
new, incredible restrictions for next year's dance-off. The entrance 
fees for the participants in the Car Rally had to be returned when it was 
learned that one entry, in its eagerness to collect the $60 entrance fee, 
ripped out a strategic mailbox used as a clue, then moved it to another 
location sending the rest of the cars many miles off the course. The 
late night film festival presented free by the Student Council and College 
Center fell into jeopardy when these individuals decided to make the 
Center Theater into a pig sty for the rest of the students to appreciate. 
All this was accomplished in the space of one week. 

Perhaps the most disgusting, most shameful development of all dur- 
ing the one week period was that of the Student Council -College 
Center Free-Film Festival. The Council, trying to provide some free 
weekend entertainment, provided a couple of monster shorts, cartoons, 
a Laurel and Hardy flick, and Airport. Most of those in attendance 
enjoyed the films and generally had a good time. But, once again., 
those in the miniscule minority made things bad for everbody. In the 
aftermath of the presentation it was discovered that cigarettes had been 
ground into the carpeting of the theater, causing irrepairable burns, 
Cokes, not supposed to have been brought into the theater in the first 
place, had been spilled on the carpeting, again resulting in damage to it. 
To climax everything, hard-boiled eggs which had made trails from the 
cafeteria, to and through some of the dorms, managed to find their way 
up onto the stage of the Theater. 

With all the inexcusable damage caused by a few irresponsible per- 
sons, for a short time the next film festival was cancelled. Then a system 
was devised to reschedule the second festival but only allowing entrances 
to those who obtained free reserved tickets in advance. The plan worked 
One wonders what the prospects are for more films in the future. 

All this was accomplished in one week. Again we echo the age-old 
cry, "If some people want or need to be treated as babies, why must 
the rest of us suffer?" For this there is no answer. Perhaps it is about 
time that the rest of us infringed upon the liberties of the trouble-mak- 
ers who attend these events since they have shown that they have no 
respect of others' rights and privileges. A minority such as them should 
not be able to impose hinderances on the majority. 

In last week's Lam Poon issue we hoped that everyone realized that 
nothing mentioned in the issue had any validity whatsoever. The line 
in the "God's Wrath" editorial stating that a local bar stayed "open all 
night to promote its trade" was intended in the purest comical sense, 
as an exaggeration, with no malignancy intended. For anyone who might 
have misunderstood this situation, we apologize.

"Well, at least I made it on time to- 
night. " 

Charleton Heston, reflect- 
ing upon his late arrival at 
the Academy Awards Pre- 

-ben neideigh 

Mr. Heston made the above statement 
at the opening of Monday night's (April 
2) Salute to John Ford Banquet (tele- 
vised nationally.) It is significant as a 
statement on the regard felt by many 
actors toward the Academy of Motion 
Picture Arts and Sciences, to wit; none 
or very little. So little, in fact, that Hes- 
ton, no less than an official host for the 
Oscar presentation, couldn't find it with- 
in his power to make the awards on time 
regardless. . .of course, it is also reas- 
suring to note, as Burt Reynolds pointed 
out, that even Moses himself isn't per- 
fect. It's just that the whole rest of the 
Academy Awards show was so damned 
imperfect, that in the end nothing really 
mattered. There were no real winners or 
losers, but only those who came and 
milled about and those who came and 
stayed in their seats. And, as usual, the 
most important celebrity didn't come at 

For all of you statistic nuts out there, 
the final score for Oscars received by ma- 
jor contenders was Cabaret -8, The God- 
father -3; Cabaret copped N the gold for 
Best Editing, Best Music Production, 
Best Set Decoration, Best Adapted Score, 
Best Cinematography, Best Director, Best 
Supporting Actor, and Best Actress. Of 
those eight awards, only the last three 
are considered major; the other five serve 
to flesh out the Marquee and give added 
snob appeal to those directly involved 
while remaining basically unimportant in 
themselves. How, really, do you judge 
set design or decoration, for example? 
How can one movie's cinematography 
be all that much better than another's 
especially when each nominated film is 
chosen specifically because it supposedly 
represents "good" cinematography? Why 
are the standards of judgement for such 
technical matters as these still couched in 
"taste" and "artfulness"? To me, unless 
a movie is so poorly filmed that its 
graininess or poor color or clarity actual- 
ly detract from my enjoyment of the mo- 
vie itself, the job is done fairly well. 
Without standards of judgement to which 
I can refer, I can find no appreciable dif- 
ference in the cinematic qualities of any 
given number of "quality" films, and I 
rather doubt that anyone else can find 
the difference either. Good cinemato- 
graphy should be expected of all movies; 
its presence should be considered a norm 
not worthy of such protracted and over- 
blown lauding. 

The Godfather's awards were all taken 
for major categories: Best Screenplay (a- 
dapted), Best Actor, and Best Film. It 
seems paradoxical, however, that a film 
that can garner eight awards in various 
categories is none-the-less still judged in- 
ferior to another. Not that I'm com- 
plaining-I, like many other movie buffs, 
was disappointed and even disgusted that 
a motion picture of the scope and po- 
wer of The Godfather, boasting a castful 
of Duvalls, Pacinos, Caans, Castellanos, 
and Brandos, an Oscar-winning director : 
(Francis Ford Coppola struck gold with 
Patton two years ago, and deservedly so), 
and some of the gutsiest sequencing of 
any film ever could be nosed out by yet 
another Broadway refugee offering littler 
more than a charismatic leading lady and 
an interesting point of view in looking 
at post-WWI German decadence. The A- 
cademy again succumbs to kitch in the 
name of Family Entertainment and green- 
backs and fails to recognize once again 
the difference between cinema art and 
arty cinema. Obviously, if The Godfather 
was the best film, it needed more than a 
good screenplay and Marlon Brando to 
qualify it. How could it have lost to the 
likes of Cabaret? The truth is that logic 
was and never will be served by the Acad- 
emy, even in a time when the motion pic- 

ture is maturing from a popcorn manu- 
facturer's delight to perhaps the only le- 
gitimate art form other than jazz that is 
essentially American in origin and style. 
Better the Cannes Festival should be tele- 
vised. Even though Cannes is foreign- 
dominated, it is far more representative 
of the movie as art than anything nom- 
inated in the last few years by the Acad- 
emy, save for The Godfather, Patton 
(both winners and to me, at least, sur- 
prisingly so), The Last Picture Show, and 
A Clockwork Orange (both sadly over- 
looked by the judges last year for ma- 
jor awards, save f or Picture Show's sup- 
porting role Oscars). 

In a year when we were presented 
with such films as Slaughterhouse Five, 
Play It Again, Sam (to my mind one of 
the finest comedies ever made), and A 
Separate Peace (a fine rendering of the 
darling of high school English teachers 
everywhere), we find the Academy still 
clinging to its basic standbys: cheap sen- 
timent (as epitomized in the Ni Plus Ul- 
tra of Hollywood schlock, Lady Sings the 
Blues), Americanized frontier violence 
(facelifted in Deliverance), and flash (ob- 
viously Cabaret), The Academy accurate- 
ly reflects the basic American trait of 
false perception of mediocrity made gran- 
diose and therefore acceptable as the Ul- 
timate Good. As Ian Anderson would put 
it, America is geared to the Average ra- 
ther than the Exceptional; teh expecta- 
tions of the American moviegoer, and 
thus the deified goals of the Academy of 
Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, are eas- 
ily satisfied by glossy baubles of cellu- 
loid, the final triumph of the mass Medi- 
ocracy in terms of entertainment. With 
the exception, again, of The Godfather, 
the motion picture industry in America 
seems to have collectively decided, "if 
we can't beat T.V., let's join it"; the 
most popular films are almost invariably 
the most mediocre, and represent little 
more than television without the com- 

I was pleased that Brando didn't show 

up. I feel much the same way about him 
that I do about George C. Scott; Brand 1 
talent, like Scott's, transcends even the 
industry's conception of excellence and 
renders all but the most refined and en 
lightened criticism inadequate and una 
propriate. Hopefully, criticism of th e ^ 
two actors' works, along with the films of 
Bogdonovich, Coppola, Kubrick, and oc- 
casionally Robert Altman, will develop 
into a school of cinematic "Belletrism" 
and treat said works not as stories or 
plays but as movies in essence and total- 
ity of both identity and artfulness. Why- 
should Brando lower himself to appearing 
among the likes of Clint Eastwood, J h n 
Wayne, and Burt Reynolds? I trust the 
sincerity of his protest against the treat- 
ment of American Indians in our cinema 
I feel secure in the assumption that he is 
indeed working for Indian's rights, and 
that his sending Sacheen Littlefeather was 
not merely a cop-out but an act both per- 
sonally and universally symbolic of the 
Indian struggle. Those in the audience 
who booed Ms. Littlefeather's remarks 
at the Awards served only to reflect the 
ignorance and nearsightedness of the Aca- 
demy as a whole. Likewise, later ra 
demy as a whole. Likewise, later related 
wisecracks by Clint Eastwood and Rac- 
quel Welch (Middle America's favorite 
pair of breasts) served only to cheapen 
an already threadbare presentation; the 
utter tastelessness of their "quips" should 
have been an affront not only to Mr. 
Brando and the followers of the Amer- 
ican Indian Movement but to all people 
of conscience who were watching. Their 
statements served only to reinforce Tru- 
man Capote's contention that most of the 
more successful actors in modern stage 
and cinema are rather unintelligent and 
untalented out of the spotlight. 

My love for movies prompts me to 
watch the Academy Awards each year 
and write a small piece on my findings. 
In this sense I suppose it is apparent that 
my love for cinema as it exists in the 
U.S. encompasses more than a little tint 
of Sado-Masochism. 

Letters To The Editor 

To: Student Body, Faculty, and Admini- 

From 1973 Quittie Staff 

This is an explanation for those of 
you who are interested in knowing when 
you are going to receive your 1973 year- 
book. In an attempt to improve the 
quality and significance of the yearbook, 
the yearbook has been changed to a Fall 
delivery schedule. This means that re- 
turning students, faculty, and administra- 
tion will be able to pick up their year- 
books at Registration September, 1973. 
To all students who are leaving because 
of graduation, transferrence, and other 
reasons, the yearbook will be mailed to 

As further explanation the deadline 
for Spring delivery was February 1 and 
the staff felt it would be more signifi- 
cant if the Spring activities were included 
in the book. Hence, the decision to 
change to a Fall delivery. This is a 
permanent change. 

For those students who do not al- 
ready know, you paid for your yearbook 
when you paid your activities fee. 

If you have any questions feel free 
to see: Marcia Keefer, Carol Crawford, 
or Frank Rutherford. 

Editor, La Vie: 

I find it almost sad that no coverage 
whatsoever was given to the girls' basket- 
ball team this season. Considering this 
was our best season, it is disheartening to 

all involved to see so little interest. 

For the benefit of the coach, J- Wal- 
ters, if no one else, could (at least) the 
final season record be printed in the 
next issue? Varsity 6-5, J-V 5-4, the 
best seasons for both teams in years. 

Thank you.

Now you can buy 
cost -no-object sound 
for a price within 
reach and reason 













(the Advent, Sansui, P.E., Shure 

luxury stereo system ) 

$ 557. about half the expected cost of an unstintingly luxurious stereo system, will now 
buy a stereo system that: 

Reproduces the entire range of musical frequencies at as high or low a sound level as 
you wish, in as big or small a living room as you wish. 

Has all the controls and facilities needed for full musical enjoyment, and all the provi- 
sions you might want for adding such niceties as headphones, a good cassette tape deck, 
or extra speakers for other rooms. 

Is both so excellent sbunding and so durable that you won't be tempted to change any 
of the components for many years to come. 

Will probably make you happier overall than anything you've bought for a long, long 

your valuable records with respect and will add no "rum- 
ble" or other annoying sounds of its own to the music. 

Since you are buying us along with our Advent/ San- 
sui/ P.E./ Shure system, it's worth knowing that we will 
cheerfully and speedily take care of anything that might 
break or turn out to have a hidden flaw in manufactur- 
ing. Specifically we guarantee all components for a period 
of two years. 

We've trimmed every ounce of fat from the price of 
this system: the $ 557 we're asking for it reflects a $ 65 
saving over the usual cost of the components individually. 

We invite you to visit us soon to hear how luxurious 
sound no longer costs an exorbitant sum. 

The cost-no-object sound this syste.n provides at a 
moderate price is the result of engineering that puts per- 
fromance ahead of frills. The renowned Advent Loud- 
speakers put out a maximum of sound with a minimum 
of fuss; countless owners and usually blase equipment 
reviewers have all commented that they sound like twice 
the price. The Sansui lOOOx AM/FM stereo receiver pro- 
vides the clean amplifier power (over 70 RMS watts of 
it) necessary to satisfy you and the Advents on the most 
demanding musical passages. Its sensitive AM/FM stereo 
tuner captures even the most elusive of your favorite sta- 
tions with clarity. The P.E. 3012 automatic turntable with 
a Shure M44E cartridge and diamond stylus will treat

pretty well, at least in regards to weather. 

With LVC fielding its first baseball 
team since 1965, it would be foolish to 
call this season anything else but a "buil- 
ding year," for the team has indeed been 
feeling its growing pains. Opening the '73 
season March 28 at Millersville, the Dutch- 
men lost 2-1 with their foes scoring the 
winning run in the last of the ninth inning. 
John Bulko looked strong in pitching the 
first seven innings. Scott Reuhr absorbed 
the defeat as Gordie Harris scored the 
lone Dutchmen run. 

On Saturday, March 31, the team hos- 
ted Wilkes in a doubleheader on the un- 
finished LV diamond that was lacking a 
backstop; Wilkes took the first game 7-2 
as Doug Stetler went the route in taking 
the defeat. The two Dutchmen co-cap- 
tains, Larry Melsky and Scott Sener, each 
hit solo homers. In the abbreviated se- 
cond game, called after five innings after 
a sudden downpour, LVC went down 
15 -0 while being held hitless. The Wilkes 
team accumulated their runs on a com- 
bination of the potency of the bats and a 
number of Dutchmen miscues. 

Brighter skies saw the LVC golf team 
win their opening match of the season 
over Dickinson on April 2, 405-412. 
The win was the team's fifteenth in a row 
over two seasons. Co-captain Chet Mos- 
teller led the Dutchmen with a 75, 
while Tim Tro*e fired a 77. Co-captain 
Jerry Frey and Bob Johns both carded 
84. Ken Bickel shot an 85. A win over 
either the Philadelphia College of Phar- 
macy or Haverford in a triangular match 
last Friday would have broken the LVC 
all-time consecutive win record. The 
golf team has another triangular match 
today at Widener against Drexel and 
Widener, and another three-team match 
next Wednesday against Ursinus and 
Johns Hopkins. 

Editor's note: What John mentioned 
above actually came true. The golf team 
was successful in its triangle match, 
winning over both Haverford and the 
Philadelphia College of Pharmacy, mak- 
ing the new consecutive record for

The baseball team, unfortunately ^ 
not fare as well, losing both games 
the doubleheader at Muhlenburg 
Saturday, 11-2 and 4-2. 


The LVC lacrosse team is apparently 
determined to equal or better last year's 
fine performance, judging from their 
early-season play. After downing Kutz- 

town State March 31 in their 


game, the squad made its first home 
appearance four days later against Dick- 
inson, adding one bright note to a typi- 
cal Annville spring day by shellacking 
the Red Devils, 10-3. The Dutchmen 
jumped off to a 6-1 lead in the first 
quarter to virtually decide the lopsided 
contest, which saw nearly all the scoring 
take place in the first half of action 
Despite the loss of last year's scoring 
star Jeff Rowe by graduation, the Valley 
offense showed no signs of weakness, as 
Ken Gilberg led the attack with four 
goals. Meanwhile, the defense, spear- 
headed by veteran Howie Knudson in 
the goalie position, gave every indication 
of living up to its high pre-season billing. 
Upcoming action includes contests a- 
gainst Franklin & Marshall, Muhlenburg, 
(April 19 at home), and Widener. All in 
all, rookie coach Bruce Correll's first 
season at the helm of the stickmen 
looks to be a successful one. 

Another bright spot in the opening 
stages of spring sports activity was the 
track team's 75-70 conquest of Wash- 
ington College on the last day of March, 
thus surpassing its victory total for the 
entire 1972 campaign. Freshman Larry 
Priester notched firsts in the 100 and 
220 and placed second in the 120 high 
hurdles, besides aiding the successful mile 
relay contingent. Obai Kabia contributed 
to the winning effort with one first 
(triple jump) and two seconds (long 
jump and high jump), while Frank 
Rutherford placed first in the 120 highs 
and second in the 440 hurdles. Three 
days earlier, the team opened by drop- 
ping a close decision to York College, 
76-68. The Dutchmen, led by Priester 
and Rutherford, managed to hold their 
own on the track, but York outpointed 
the Valley in the field events to take the 
match. The squad's two remaining home 
meets are against Delaware Valley (April 
18) and Western Maryland (April 28).

La Vie Collegienne, Friday, May 4, 1973 


Looking over the past year, La Vie could have gone under many 
different banners than the one that appeared on nearly every issue. The 
first one or two issues might just as well have been named My Weekly 
Reader, since the quality of the paper was not as we would have wanted 
it. Later on, at the end of the basketball season we put out an edition in 
tribute to what we consider to be our greatest basketball team ever at 
Lebanon Valley. This issue has been called anything from great to La 
Vie Illustrated. Then came the Lam Poon publication, which again 
received anything from verbal accolades to charges of criminal actions. 
Finally, this past issue might very appropriately have been entitled the 
Lebanon Valley College Merchandizer. None of these varying papers 
were planned this way at the beginning of the year, but it is just the 
way they worked out. Everything considered, it has been an interesting 
year. We hope to learn from our mistakes and successes in order to bring 
to you a much improved La Vie in the upcoming semester. To help in 
the paper's improvement, we will need student help and participation on 
the staff and among the general populace as well. It has been no secret 
that La Vie is severely understaffed. We have tried throughout the past 
year to encourage student participation in its workings, but mostly to 
no avail. Too often we hear complaints about the context and quality of 
the paper, but when the suggestion is made that these critics lend a 
hand to improve the next issues, there results a resounding chorus of 
silence from which we are supposed to gain new initiative. It might be 
too crude to suggest that these individuals place their loose change 
where their vocal eruptions emanate, yet it is tempting to say so. 

Other than direct work on the staff, there is another way for the 
student and faculty population as a whole can assist with our publica- 
tion. This is to write a letter to the editor expressing their satisfactions 
or dissatisfactions. This area of aid to the paper is becoming more and 
more a sore spot with the present editors and staff, not because of what 
has been written, but what has not been sent to us to print. 

Several times after certain issues of La Vie were released containing, 
controversial material there has been a flood of verbal applause or abuse 

aimed at the editors for their stands on certain subjects or for the way 
certain articles were presented. This reaction, good or bad, is what we 
desire most and strive to achieve. It shows that students or faculty are 
taking time to notice us. What we do resent, however, is the form that 
these reactions take -verbal. 

La Vie is presented as a written facet of the communications field. 
As such, when we express ourselves on paper we feel that it would not 
be too much to expect our readers to submit their views also in like form. 
However, time and again this has proved to be the exception rather 
than the rule. There have been several instances (as pointed out in an 
earlier editorial) when the editors and reporters have been pulled off 
the streets and verbally reprimanded by persons not in accordance with 
our views. Yet, when it comes to expressing their satisfaction in writing, 
these people who pay $3,000 per year to attend LVC or are paid 
thousands more each year to teach here, become amazingly and sudden- 
ly illiterate. They do not know how to write. 

During one session of verbal harassment, it was pointed out to the 
outraged person that he should make his opposition known by writing a 
letter to the editor. To this he replied that in his opinion it was not 
worth the time involved to do so. Yet, this same individual found the 
time to abuse two reporters and an editor spanning a time much longer 
than it would have taken to write a concise, well-worded letter. So it 
was that while we were verbally - and unofficially - reprimanded, we

were not officially (notified in writing) made to take note of our 

It is one thing to be treated with disrespect by various individuals on 
campus, but it takes quite a bit more control to endure an insult by a 
governing body of the College itself. This arose after the Lam Poon 
issue was released to the public. Almost immediately the flack came 
flying because of the context of some of the articles presented in it. The 
controversy rose so far as to inspire the faculty to pass a resolution at 
their next meeting expressing their dissatisfaction with the lack of good 
taste as displayed in various articles in the issue. Following this the 
editor was called into the office of President Sample, who in turn 
"officially" relayed the message of the faculty resolution to the editor. 
In doing this the President said he agreed with the faculty's assessment 
of the situation and would personally go one step further by describing 
the nature of some articles as "a cowardly act" in that they "attacked" 
people long dead and no longer able to defend themselves. He made his 
point well, but it remains doubtful in the eyes of the editors whether any- 
thing in the issue could be characterized as an "attack". As one student 
put it, "It's a pretty sad state when we can't laugh at ourselves anymore." 

Be that as it may, the editor returned to his work and waited patient- 
ly day after day for a copy of the faculty resolution to arrive in the mail 
so it could be prepared for printing in the earliest possible issue. As the 
days wore on the anger and disgust of the editors grew more intense. We 
could not have been snubbed by the Faculty! Certainly if they could 
take time out of their meetings to consider their resolution, they could 
take a few minutes to send a copy to La Vie! But, no, this was not to be. 
Did the Faculty pass this resolution to criticize the paper or did they 
take such an action for just their own personal satisfaction? We do not 

At any rate, we felt it necessary to point out to our readers that 
there was a faculty resolution passed and what we "think" that resolu- 
tion said. Never again will we come this close to writing other people's 
letter for them. We always strive to present both sides of the story for 
that is the cornerstone of objective journalism. But from now on we are 
not initiating any scavenger hunts to dredge up the opinions of others. 

To make a reflection on an opinion expressed earlier, is it not also 
a cowardly act to say something which can be later denied rather than 
to have the conviction to write down a statement and put one's name 
to it? 

Perhaps the most ironic notation to this past year can be made by 
referring to an issue which raised the most student sentiment we have 
had all year. The subject was apathy. 

Have a nice summer. 


by Stacy Pappas 

Marcia Gehris came to Lebanon V a i. 
ley in September and became the Assis- 
tant to the Dean of Students, house- 
mother of Vickroy, and secretary to the 
College Center Advisory Committee. She 
also does a little work for Mr. Smith i n 
the Center. 

Her job here is certainly a majo t 
transition from singing as a career. Many 
secretarial-administrative careers afforded 
themselves in New York, but the city' s 
appeal had gone. She heard about the 
opening at Lebanon Valley (her old alma 
mater) through her roommate and "was 
lead here". 

Things have changed since Ms. Gehris 
graduated (Thank God!). Then, intervisi- 
tation took place once a month from 
1-5 on Sunday. She thinks intervisitation 
and keys are great and reflect a more 
mature attitude. Co-ed dorms and twenty- 
four hour open house policies are realis- 
tic and should be carefully considered. 
Drinking used to be a much bigger prob- 
lem in the dorms. Now students frequent 
Rich's, the pride of Annville. Ms. Gehris 
sees nothing wrong with Grove parties 
and even went to the "Hoadle" (the 
Hilton Hotel of Annville) a few times 
herself. Previously belonging to a fratern- 
ity or sorority labeled you. They are 
much less clannish now and certainly 
help our social lives. 

When asked about possible improve- 
ments, Ms. Gehris replied: "Students 
should make more of an effort to talk 
with President Sample, a sit-down meal 
should again be served on an involuntary 
basis, and more drama courses, such as 
workshops, should be instituted." 

In specific reference to a movement 
underway for unlimited contraceptive 
information and devices, Ms. Gehris 
thinks the idea basically sound. The 
initiative, of course, must come from 
the students, and the entire program must 
be handled with counseling. She'd like to 
see the issue on a more open restriction

"As a commuter your campus home 
is our College Center. " 

-Walter L. Smith, Jr. 

The above quote is part of a form let- 
ter that I, and I presume all commuters, 
received just prior to the beginning of 
the academic year. It made me feel all 
warm inside. I mean, gee whiz, a real 
"home away from home" where you 
can't put your feet up on the furniture 
or stay after two in the morning or 
write dirty words on the Graffiti Board 
or go to the bathroom without permis- 
sion (almost) or put unapproved message 
3x5 cards on the message board. Wowie, 
all the nit-picking discipline of Grandma's 
house! "But what of it," I said to my- 
self. "I'll just go downstairs and eat my 
85 £ home-away -from-home snack bar 
lunch and try to forget everything while 
I read my daily mail." 

I should have known better. 

Here, before I go any further, is a 
standing invitation to anyone on cam- 
pus: my mailbox number is 102, com- 
bination c2 n3. Anyone who can open 
the mailbox (other than W.L.S., Jr.) is 
entitled to read any juicy tidbit of per- 
sonal mail that they can retrieve from 
it. No questions will be asked. You see, 
my mailbox won't open. It has been 
opened, to my knowledge, once this en- 
tire school year, and in that case W.L.S., 
Jr. opened it himself, by some means yet 
unknown to man: I pay good money for 
a mailbox that doesn't open. Here is my 
sad story. 

Sometime in the misty past of Sept- 
ember, just after registering and doing 
all the nifty things that just-registered 

Valleyites do, I descended into the bowels 
of Alan W. Mundland (hereafter the Cen- 
ter Basement) to open my mailbox. Ar- 
riving at the scene, I opened my letter 
with the combination as listed above, 
and read directions. "Turn left dial in 
any direction to position c2 (see dia- 
gram)." I complied with zombatoid de- 
votion. "Next turn right dial in any di- 
rection to position n3." I twisted the 
dial with the latent skill of a master safe- 
cracker. "Now, press thumb latch to 
right and your mailbox will open." I 
pressed the latch, sweat dripping from 
my chin. Nothing. The latch wouldn't 
budge. I repeated the dialing procedure. 
Nothing again. I began scanning the di- 
rections for loopholes; I figured I must 
not have been doing something right. 
I tried different dial directions. Nothing 
still. Finally, I got very frustrated and 
kicked the wall, injuring my right foot in 

the process. In a haze of despair and fail- 
ure, I strode out in search of The Smith. 

I found W.L.S., Jr. upstairs, walking 
slowly about his kingdom, whispering to 
himself the prayer from the bottom of 
that week's blue top sheet and saying 
hello to people who were trying des- 
perately to avoid him. I summoned up 
all the courage I could muster (which 
considering my crushed mental state, was- 
n't much) and walked over to the Sire of 
the Center. "Mr Smith?" "Yes, there, 
Ben, what can I do for you?" he grim- 
aced. "Nfc^. Smith, sir, ah, my mailbox 

won't open, sir," I stuttered. "Wont 
open?" W.L.S., Jr. incredulized. "Are 
you sure you have the combination 
right?" "Yes, sir, I am sure, sir,' 

I reaf- 

firmed. "Well, I guess Maintenance 


want to know about this. I will tell you 
when it is fixed, there, Ben. Would you 
like a restroom pass?" he added enthus- 
iastically. "No sir, that is quite all right- 
sir. Thank you Mr. Smith, sir." I ge nU ' 
fleeted and strode out of the airlock at 
the front entrance, knowing God and the 
Alumni Association were on my side. 

Some weeks passed and the volume 
of mail in my box increased alarming ) 
as I watched, helpless. Then, about hal - 
way through October, a voice singled n^ 
out from behind the Big Desk. "Ben- 
resounded, echoing off the closed door 
of the dining hall. It was The Smith- 
"Yes, Mr. Smith, sir?" I replied, beg^ 
ning to kneel. "Stand, Ben, we'll dispen ^

sparks and flame and smoke with w° rdS 
like "Zam!" and "Kapow!" floa"^ 
cartoon-like in the air. I had been deh v

(Continued from Page 3, Col. 5) 

"Thank-yous" to my Beatific Benefac- 
tor. Within seconds, I stood before box 
102. I pulled the directions sheet from 
the back of Russian for Beginners (Barnes 
& Noble, $2.75) and reading intently, I 
manipulated the dials. I turned them so 
carefully so as not to disturb a speck of 
dust on the mechanism; I wanted every- 
thing perfect for the de-virginization of 
my mailbox! Would that I had had can- 
dles and a magnum of champagne! When 
n3 inched into place, I slowly and gen- 
tly nudged the thumb latch, my heart 
pounding, my palms clammy. 

I wept. I actually stood, a grown, 
married man alone in the wilderness of 
Mundland, arm across my eyes, and 
sobbed. "My Smith, why hast thou for- 
saken me?" I cried. Then I became an- 
gry. I wrenched the dials around, snap- 
ping the thumb latch. Five, twenty-five, 
two hundred and fifty, two thousand 
five hundred times. . .1 have no idea how 
many times I grappled with the lock on 
my mailbox. For all I know I was ser- 
ving purgatory right there in front of 
box 102. Finally, my emotion and ener- 
gy spent, I turned and headed upstairs 
almost at a crawl. At the top of the 
stairs, in the glare of the skylight, stood 
W.L.S., Jr. I began to rush toward him, 
fury clouding my reason. . . 

But revenge was not to be served. I 
could not utter a word. I saw The Smith 
just standing, gazing out of the plate glass 
of the lounge windows, envisioning no 
doubt a stained glass representation of 
the martyrdom of Saint Sebastian. He 
seemed to be in a state of Holy Rapture, 
during which trance-like periods only 
Malcolm Meyer and the Advisory Board 
can communicate with him. I could not 
disturb his solace. WHAT GOOD WOULD 
IT DO? I shuffled out of the Center into 
the light of day, head bowed, a broken 

Time flashed by, healing my wounds, 
making me forget. Then it was March. My 
box bulged with paper, but I cared not. 
I had transcended above mere Postal An- 
xiety. My soul was free from the curse of 
the lock. 

Then one day, while talking with a 
friend, the Voice assailed me once more. 
"Ben!" The building seemed to leave its 
foundations. I turned to confront the 
blazing eyes of The Smith. I cowered, 
recognizing his infamous Stare of Judg- 
ment. "Have you checked your mailbox 
recently? It seems quite full!" he incised. 
His voice slashed to my marrow. Then, 
I could feel the frustration and anger I 
I had for months suppressed rise within

me. I raised my head and stared into 
his eyes. My friend stood by, gaping at 
the sight of confrontation. I felt my 
mouth open. 

"My mailbox still won't openWV I 

Instantly, the fire in W.L.S., Jr.'s eyes 
was extinguished. His godliness withered; 
I knew his mind was assuming a fetal 
position. "Hmmm, I see," he gasped in- 
audibly. He then turned on his heel and 
slinked down the dark stairwell into the 
basement. Clouds had hidden the sun; 
no one had ever seen The Smith in such 
a state before. 

I feit the sweet glow of triumph ooze 
over my body. I had won! I was right! 
The walls of the College Center seemed 
to sprout daffodils and a thousand little 
cupids plunking out sweet nothings on 
their bowstrings. My final victory was 
complete. W.L.S., Jr. would retrieve my 
mail from the service entrances to the 
boxes and that would be that. 

But when W.L.S., Jr. returned, he was 
no longer crushed. The old apocalyptic 
gleam had returned to his irises. His 
mouth was twisted into an odd, pained 
grin. "Follow me!" he requested between 
clenched teeth. 

I followed him, trembling in my sad- 
dle shoes. I did not know what to expect, 
but when I gazed at the wall of mailboxes 
I saw that the worst had happened. My 
mailbox, which all year resisted any hu- 
man effort to open it and remove its hal- 
lowed contents, was standing defiantly 

My whole body became flaccid. I 
could conceive of no worse happenstance. 

W.L.S., Jr., the advocate of authoritari- 
anism, the malevolent Master of Mund- 
land had won. I croaked out a last des- 
perate question. 

"How did you do it?" 

"Simple!" he beamed. "I used the 
proper combination. I trust there will be 
no further trouble." His voice seared like 
molten lava. He then spun and strode 
majestically out of sight. 

I quickly gathered all of the year's 
worth of mail out of the mailbox and 
poured over it ravenously, searching in- 
tently for an important message I might 
have missed, an important honor I might 
have won, an important appointment I 
might have missed. 


Not a single piece of mail I had re- 
ceived all year was of any great impor- 
tance. The entire Travail of the Mailbox 
had been for naught. The pearls of my 
concern and exertion had been cast be- 
fore the swine of Campus Mail. 

"But at least," I thought to myself, 
"I can open the box now. Mr. Smith 
wouldn 't lie to me." Just to reassure my- 
self that my mailbox was, at long last, 
functional, I closed the door. I heard the 
latch close with a tinkly metallic "click". 
I rubbed my hands together, and with, 
a flourish turned the dials to c2 and n3. 
I pressed softly but firmly on the thumb 

The door wouldn't open. 

I stared at my aluminum adversary 
for what must have been three hours. I 
did not cry. I did not anger. At the end 
of three hours, I had come to the correct 
conclusion. I had given up. 

Be it ever so frustrating, there's no 
place like "home".

La Vie Collegienne, Friday, May 4, 19^ 

One of the first at- 
tractions at the Arts 
Festival on Friday 
night was a musical 
group called The Sons 
of Thunder, not to be 
confused with the wea- 
ther outside at the time. 

Estimates of attendance at the festival ranged from 5,000 to 
6,000 people. At times this seemed to closely approximate 
the number of kids and grownups crowding the basement of 

the Chapel and Vickroy Hall. 

Thousands attended 
the festival this year. 
Tho most were evident 
after the rain stopped 
on Sunday, sizable 
crowds filled the Gym 
looking at anything 
from copper enameling 
to mounted drift wood. 

Because of the bad weather of the first two days, 
the maximum use had to be made of a minimal 
of space. Thus the dejuried art exhibit also dou- 
bled as the setting for a few numbers by a 
percussion ensemble. 

1973 Spring Arts Festival 

A typical Valley weekend? 
It rained throughout Friday 
and Saturday as it always does 
in Annville. But this was not 
an ordinary weekend; it was 
the date of the Arts Festival. 
Nature not withstanding, the 
activities were moved indoors 
and the fun continued. Then 
on Sunday morning the sun 
poked through the clouds thus 
making a day previously the 
forgotten one of the festival 
the most memorable day of 
this years fun fest. 

Both fowl and canine 
were equally thrilled to 
see, if not be a part of 
the festival. 

Vie Collegienne, Friday, May 4, 1973 


Origionally intended to be displayed in 
outside stands, the arts and crafts exhi- 
bits were moved in quarters in the Gym 
as the rain dampened Friday and Saturday's 
activities. Finally the sun poked its way 
through the clouds on Sunday to turn 
what in past years has been a do-nothing 
day into the highlight of the Festival. 

Activities were taking place all over the 
campus at the same time. While kids 
experimented with corn starch in the 
Quad, a woodwind quintet entertained 
interested persons in the lounge of the 
College Center.

Rich Schneider as Noah tries to convince a skeptical Japheth (Bruce Rangnow) of God's will in destroying the world as 
Rachel (Steph Bates), Esther (Peggy Whorl), and Leah (Ruth Amidon) look on in a scene from Two by Two. 

TWO by TWO : very effective 

by Harold Ladd 

The announcement of the Wig and 
Buckle Society's decision to present Two 
by Two for the Spring musical met with 
very mixed reactions. Probably the most 
common one was "What's that?". Of all 
the musicals now on the market that 
are available for staging in amateur and 
semi-professional productions, why use 
one that was rather obscure in compari- 
son to Mamel, Hello, Dolly !, and Came- 
lot? Wig and Buckle certainly proved 
that just because a play or musical is not 
well-known doesn't mean it is not worth 
one's time of day. 

Two by Two is unique in many 
aspects, with probably the fact that it 
is not a musical extravaganza a very 
positive credit. The fact also that it does 
not have a large cast (only eight people, 
four men and four women) makes it a 
very strong, unified story, since it can 
focus on such a small group of characters. 

The musical, based on a play titled 
The Flowering Peach by Clifford Odets, 
is a take-off on the biblical story of Noah 
and his ark. Directed by Ed Donnelly, 
whose recent credits have been Horace 
Vandergelder in Hello, Dolly! and Deputy 
Governor Danforth in The Crucible, the 
story unfolded smoothly and effectively. 
The conflict established between Noah 
and his very skeptical family in the first 
act can be likened to today's world, 
where one questions his values and judg- 
ments, and even his beliefs in God and 
fellow man. The second act is an in- 
spiring change, in part a rebirth of life, 
in part a rebirth of hope, and in part a 
rebirth of humanity. God's sign that he 
will never destroy the world again (the 
rainbow) carries this along. One left the 
auditorium with a renewed and refreshed 
outlook towards his own life. 

The cast presented a continued repre- 
sentation of faces that are well-known to 
LVC audiences. Rich Schneider as Noah 
carried on his usually excellent acting 
abilities that have kept LVC audiences 
coming back to each production he 
appears in. However, his voice was not 
up to par, and there were many solos 
that were rendered ineffective because 
of this problem. 

Peggy Whorl as the staid and long- 
suffering Esther, Noah's wife, presented 
even more of the various talents she 
possesses, and probably surprised the 
LVC audiences with this particular pro- 
duction, for she has an amazingly good 

voice (in previous stage appearances, 
Miss Whorl was not required to sing-she 
has played mostly serious roles.). 

Bruce Rangnow, as the confused and 

indecisive "adolescent" Japheth, made 
his first (and last-he's a senior) major 
character appearance in this production. 
This role fit Mr. Rangnow very well 
(one could say type casting) and I con- 
sider him to be the outstanding male 
character of this play. 

Kevin Pry as Shem, the oldest son, 
and Ron Minnich as Ham the middle 
son, presented the audience with some 
surprising facets of character. Mr. Pry, 
well-known for his past appearances this 
year, again tried to overcome his small 
size in making Shem real, and succeeded 
so long as he was alone or in a group, 
but in dealing with his wife (a tall and 
big girl) he was not effective. I am sure 
that many people were surprised to find 
Mr. Minnich in the role of the lustful, 
not-to-be-satisfied Ham because of his 
personal background. He carried the role 
along in harmony with the others, al- 
though sometimes his exuberance in his 
role led to questioning looks and raised 
eyebrows from the audience. 

Stephanie Bates, as Rachel, the wife 
of Ham, and later of Japheth, put on a 
very good characterization, but as in the 
case of her portrayal of Mrs. Molloy in 
Hello, Dolly!, disappointed the audience 
with her singing. It is unfortunate that 
a talented female such as Miss Bates is 
unable to project her voice for show 
appearances. This fault leaves a large 
gap in the effectiveness of her character 

Ruth Wilson, as the traditional "dumb 
and beautiful broad" type character of 
Goldie, commanded the audience's at- 
tention upon her late arrival into the 
first act, but as the play moved on, the 
antics she found her way into turned the 
audience against her. Again there can be 
echoings of type casting, but the desired 
effect that was to be drawn into the 
character of Goldie was well presented. 

I leave Ruth Amidon, who portrayed 
Leah, Shem's wife, to last not because 
that is the way the characters are listed 
in the program (she is not last), but be- 
cause her abilities to act are outstanding. 
Her use of facial expressions and body 
gestures causes her to steal many scenes 
from the other characters. In combi- 
nation with these faculties, her somewhat 
husky and low voice rounded out her 
characterization of Leah and made her 
stand out before the others in the play. 

The musical numbers in Two by Two 
represent a clash between modern social 
beliefs and ancient customs. "Put Him 
Away" can be read as an attitude towards 
mental problems we cope with now, 

but then knew nothing about. "Some- 
thing, Somewhere" is a plea to prevent 
the destruction of all humanity - will 
man ever totally abandon his fellows? 
"Poppa Knows Best" is of course that 
ever-present problem of family ties and 
whether the son knows more than the 
father (the. world changes as time passes, 
right?). These three numbers and the 
others were very skillfully planned and 
played under the direction of Miss Bonnie 
Phillips (whom I believe is LVC's first 
female musical director) and proved to 
be a highlight in the enjoyment of the 
play itself. 

Two by Two was a very effective 
musical in its small way (size of cast), 
and was much more than anyone expected 
it to be. After all, the tale of Noah as 
written in Genesis 8 is about all one can 
make of a religious story. That is, until 
now. Sometimes a modern interpretation 
of ancient stories and ancestry loses sight 
of the meaning of the original. Two by 
Two does not. It makes one more proud 
of what that ancestry means.

Scott Sener hits a home run in a baseball game against Wilkes. It was for a losing effort, however, as the Dutchman team lost 7-2. 


And so ends another season of varsity 
sports competition, Lebanon Valley style. 
The past year has had its share of ups 
and downs, but overall it would have to 
be considered one of competitive success. 
Teams which had established a winning 
tradition continued in it, while other 
sports in which victory had been a 
seldom-experienced joy showed dramatic 

Despite the fact that most fall sports 
attention at this school is directed to 
football, good performances were also 
turned in by the girls' field hockey, 
soccer (which will be going varsity), 
and cross-country teams. The last was 
perhaps the most surprising, as the 
harriers missed the .500 mark by only 
one victory although rookie coach Jim 
Davis was working with a small and 
largely inexperienced squad. Gridiron 
action was highlighted by a four-game 
stretch in midseason during which the 
team scored 13 touchdowns while allow- 
ing only three against Ursinus, Muhlen- 
burg, and Moravian (a major upset). 

Although the gridders were clearly out- 
classed in four of their nine encounters, 
only a heartbreaking early-season loss to 
Dickinson prevented them from again 
registering a winning record. 

When fall sports action was finally 
finished and Annville winter weather 
forced the Valley's student-athletes in- 
doors, everyone's eyes and thoughts 
instinctively turned toward basketball. 
Led by its superlative senior trio of Don 
Johnson, Ed Iannarella, and Kris Linde, 
the squad embarked on four months of 
individual and team record-shattering 
activity. High points of the regular season 
included triumphs in the Annville Jaycee, 
W&L, and Sponaugle tournaments and a 
three-day stretch in mid-January during 
which the squad first annihilated a 
highly-regarded Towson State five and 
then defeated arch-rival Albright in a 
thrilling encounter. The most eagerly- 
awaited match, however, was with Wide- 
ner, who had handed the Dutchmen two 
of their four defeats the previous season, 
and Lou Sorrentino's club avenged these

Yes, gang, even LVC's tasty glop won't 
satiate them. Their activities include

Acquiring too much factual knowledge 
is a possible disadvantage. Of course, a

they learn the Word. And there are no

previous setbacks with a decisive 76-55 
win. The cagers ended the season with a 
22-2 record and continued their winning 
ways in the divisional playoffs. Friday 
night's lopsided conquest of Muhlenburg 
was a fine effort by the entire team, but 
the most dramatic moment occurred 
late in the game with the outcome no 
longer in doubt, as Donny Johnson hit a 
bucket to finally break Howie Landa's 
all-time career scoring mark. Saturday 
evening's rematch with Widener proved 

to be equally unforgettable, as the Dutch- 
men, trailing by five points with only 
two minutes left, rallied to notch a 
61-59 victory and wrap up the divi- 
sional title. Even the following week's 
loss to Cheyney State in the Mid-East 
regional couldn't lessen the impact of 
these earlier triumphs. Sights such as 
Don Johnson putting in an "impossible" 
layup, Kris Linde sizing up a free-throw 
attempt, Ed Iannarella threading a see-

Kalo would very much like to win 
the Supremacy Trophy this year so it 
can be retired permanently into their 
hands. This goal of winning the trophy 
for the third time involved pride as well 
as financial reasons. Between the time 
the frat won the top prize for intra- 
murals last year and the end of this 
year, the trophy became damaged. 
Should they fail to win it this year they 
face the prospect of paying for a new 
trophy to replace the broken one. 

Needless to say, the incentive for 
winning is there but this might not be 
enough as the frat faces a serious chal- 

can find and prepare for conversion! 
Someone will soon come along because 
these children of God aren't snobs and 
firmly believe in being vocal. 

So I join with Ms. Gehris in yawping 
a hearty P.T.L.* to all!

lenge from both Residents and Philo. 
Both are within striking distance of the 
top spot and with the results of three 
competitions remaining to be settled, 
the race might be considered wide open 
between all three organizations. 

Having 62 1/3 points, Kalo has run 
into difficulties in establishing a solid 
lead. It could manage at best a tie with 
Philo and Residents for first in basket- 
ball. Philo built up its stature in seeming- 
ly minor, but nevertheless, equally im- 
portant contests such as weightlifting. 
Residents meanwhile, after starting out 
strong, proceeded in what seems to be 
their traditional mid-season floundering. 
The problem lies in the fact that the 
big-name sports (football, basketball) 
attract most of the attention while 
ping pong, paddleball, squash, and weight- 
lifting go on basically unnoticed. Yet it 
is these "minor" competitions from 
which the majority of the points are 

Close behind Kalo with 58 1/3 
points, Resident threatened to make 
surprising inroads into that point spread 
as their Softball team led by pitcher 
Dave White's ERA of .000 defeated 
Kalo 4-0 this past Sunday afternoon. 
The feeling here is that with the Knights 
fielding a strong team this season they 
should win all their matches in the 
tournament. If nothing else, Residents 
will have gained something on Kalo. 

If the Residents won the track meet 
this past Monday, Kalo's chances of 
recapturing the coveted prize look very 
slim, as may be their wallets after this 

blocking a frustrated foe's shot, Charlie 
Brown igniting the offense with a daring 
steal. . .all these and more provided the 
team's fans with enough recollections 
for a lifetime of nostalgia. 

Although still overshadowed by bas- 
ketball, the sport of wrestling finally 
appears to be coming into its own here. 
The team has already arrived; the stu- 
dent support-hopefully -is on its way. 
This past season's overall record of 
11-5-2, featuring (among others) a 
hard-fought and well-deserved triumph 
over a talented Western Maryland team, 
was its best ever, and there were also 
many outstanding individual efforts. Steve 
Sanko led the way with an 11-1 mark, 
seven falls, and second-place finish in the 
MACs. Upperclassmen Chet Mosteller*, 
Al Shortell, and Doug Dahms also turned 
in winning logs, as did a number of 
freshmen, most notably Neil Fasnacht, 
Larry Priester, and George Kline. Since 
co-captain Doren Leathers was the squad's 
only senior, the outlook for the future 
appears bright. On the distaff side, the 
women's basketball team completed its 
season as the third winter squad to post 
a winning record (6-5). 

While spring sports efforts have 
not, as of this writing, been completed, 
there have already been a number of pos- 
itive accomplishments recorded. Coach 
Gerald Petrofes' golf squad ran its record- 
breaking winning streak to 18 before 
finally suffering a defeat, and the base- 
ball team hasn't done too badly for its 
first season of full varsity competition, 
in several years. Meanwhile, the lacrosse 
squad continues to pile up victories 
despite a 10-5 loss to nationally-ranked 
Franklin & Marshall. The team's most 
recent home encounter resulted in an 
impressive 10-2 win over Muhlenburg, 
as Ken Gilberg scored three times to pace 
the attack. Track, which along with 
cross-country has been among the least 
successful of Valley athletic squads, is 
also enjoying a resurgence. Proving that 
its early-season conquest of Washington 
College was no fluke, the team has gone 
on to post victories over Loyola and 
Albright while losing only by three to 
Muhlenburg. Larry Priester (100), Chris 
Hanna (440 hurdles), and Doug Dahms 
(discus) took firsts in the Loyola-Johns 
Hopkins triangular meet, while Frank 
Rutherford (120 highs), Priester (220), 
Rick Zingg (mile), Obai Kabia (high 
jump), and John Radich (pole vault) 
captured honors against Muhlenburg. The 
squad's most recent outing, a 79 , /2-65 1 /2 
loss to Delaware Valley, saw Priester and 
Kabia each pick up two firsts, Priester 
in the 100 and 220 and Kabia in the 
high jump and triple jump. Other firsts 
were registered by Tom Chesney (440) 
and Rutherford (120 highs), who was the 
only Dutchmen to take a first (same 
event) against Widener and Albright.

With another spring season quickly 
drawing to a close, let us take time to re- 
fleet on those demons of all athletes 
statistics. While the golf squad is C ofi- 
eluding yet another successful campaign 
the re-release of an LVC baseball team 
is finishing off its somewhat dismal 

As of April 27 the baseball team's 
record stood at 2-9 with four games 
remaining on the schedule. LVC's two 
diamond wins were both presented by 
Penn State Capitol Campus. The Lebanon 
Valley nine has not been without its 
notable individual performances, how- 
ever. With a batting average of .434 
Randy Rupich has led the team in hit- 
ting thus far. John Bulko has hit a lusty 
.357 for the Dutchmen, while Larry 
Melsky and Joe DeRoba are currently 
at .290 and .260 respectively. Scott 
Sener leads the team in RBI'S with 1 
and extra base hits with 4. Ed Boeckel 
and Dave Eshelman share the team lead 
in stolen bases with 5 each. 

In addition to the raw statistical 
performances, there have been several 
other pleasant surprises for Coach Lou 
Sorrentino this spring. The emergence of 
Jed Uhrich as a fireballing relief special- 
ist and clutch home run hitter, ala Deron 
Johnson (sic), and the sturdy outfield 
play of Sener, Eshelman, and Hank 
Henckler has been appreciated. The long 
ball threats of Sener, Melsky, and John 
Bulko has strengthened the middle of the 
Dutchmen batting order. The pitching of 
Bulko and Doug Stetler will be missed 
next year, both are seniors. The depen- 
dable performances of Gordie Harris and 
Dan Ober in the infield will also be 
missed, as they will also be graduated by 
next year, but the ever consistent Joe 
DeRoba will return, as will the majority 
of this year's roster. All in all, the 
baseball season has been a success in the 
light of the experience the underclass- 
men received. 

Coach Jerry Petrofes' golf team had 
an almost opposite team record compared 
to the diamond squad as of April 27, 
with 9 wins in 12 matches. Again leading 
the golfers in their winning ways was co- 
captain Jerry Frey. Frey had the low 
individual average score on the squad 
with a 75, including a new LVC record 
65 on April 19 at Capitol Campus. The 
team score that day was also an all-time 
LVC low at 382. Besides Frey's seasonal 
average of 75, other team averages in- 
clude co-captain Chet Mosteller's 80, 
Tim Trone's 82, Bob Johns' 83, P aU ' 
Zahuta and Bob Pembleton's 86, an 
Ken Bickel's 87. Frey, Mosteller, Job" 5 ' 
Pembleton, and Bickel will all be retur- 
ning next year. .,
